The ujoints can cause a driveline vibration. How bad is the vibration? it is possible a tire slung off a wheel weight. this is kinda common.

SOURCE: ball joints repair on a 1997 chevy blazer

If they are the original ball joints you will have to remove the rivets on them. The new ones should come with replacement nut and bolts. You will have to remove the brakes, and move the steering knuckle out of the way (You don't have to remove the tie rod end). It isn't difficult, just time consuming. You can do it in the driveway on stands. Make sure you have a couple hours, and a case of beer.

SOURCE: replace lower ball joints on a 2000 chevy blazer 4

Raise vehicle up on jack stands so that the stands are under the lower controll arms and the suspension is "loaded" Remove the front tire(s) (if you break the torque on the nuts while the wheel is still on the ground it helps, but do not loosen them completely as you will be looking for new rims and wheel studs too). Place a drift or some other suitable object in one of the brake rotor vanes so that it will hit the brake caliper and stop the rotor from moving and remove the CV shaft nut (it's a big ****** make sure you have the right socket on hand before getting to this point). Next remove the brake caliper and rotor then undo the wheel bearing retaining bolts and remove the wheel bearing. This should give you enough room to move the axle shaft back and up so you can work on the ball joint. If you've had ball joints replaced before just unbolt the ones that are installed and using a pickle fork, or a block of wood and a hammer, drive the ball joint stud from the knuckle. (make sure to support the upper control arm so it doesn't drop down on you when you do this) If you are working on original ball joints then I reccomend placing a block of wood or something else that will protect the cv boots from drill bits ect and drill out the rivets holding the ball joint in place. then remove in the same manner indicated in the previous paragraph. installation is pretty much the reverse of removal and don't forget to torque your cv shaft nut I have a 1999 and the manual specs 103FTlbs... This is a critical torque as it helps preload your wheel bearing. Too high and you'll burn them up, too low and they'll be loose and wear out.

2000 Chevy venture wobbles and makes noise on passenger side with increased speed it starts shimmering real bad,just replaced the CV axle


Lift that tire off the ground. Grab it on the top and bottom. If it moves, have some on watch the lower ball joint. If the ball joint moves, replace it. If it doesn't replace the wheel bearing. If the tire doesn't move top and bottom. Grab the sides and move back and forth. If you feel slop in it, replace the outer tierod. Do this soon, because a lot of vibration could be close to failing/wreck.

Vibration rumbling coming from front end of a 1997 chevy blazer 4 wd


You still have hubs, and the front driveshaft. On some models the front driveshaft can be removed leaving the pinion forks/ ring in place. Some other Transfer cases may use an output shaft thats like the tailshaft on an automatic. This style could leave a gapping hole when you remove the front driveshaft.

Tires are a problem once a wear pattern is embedded in the tread. Sometimes a front to back rotation will reduce noise.

A caliper could be stuck skipping over a turning rotor.

1997 Chevy Lumina suspension/steering/?


You need to get this car up on a hoist and have either yourself or a mechanic do some prying and probing to determine what suspension parts have play in them. I usually get the car up on a hoist and use a crowbar, etc. to pry and see if there is play in any of the suspension. It does sound like a cv joint but you might as well check everything else out. Good luck!

On the front passenger side, I replaced the ball joint (it was bad), the tie rod (bad) the wheel bearing (bad) and the CV HalfShaft (bad)....yet.... there is STILL shaking on the passenger side of the car....


The new tires could be out of balance,or even though they are new could have a bad belt in one of them,If it was doing this,the problem,if it was there before the tires were installed,have the front end checked.And you may need a front end alignment.If the tie rod,and ball joint were bad on that side,then chances are the other side may have bad front end parts also.You know it needs alignment after replacing tie rod ends don`t you?Eye balling the tie rod end does not get it back in line,and it may have needed the alignment anyway,Have a 4 wheel alignment done to make sure that is out og the equation while diagnosing the problem.

4x4 chevy blazer popping sound when i turn wheels


Lube the tie rod ends, center link, upper and lower ball joints, and steering link. If noise is still the same, you probably have worn upper or lower control arrn bushings or a steering box problem.
