Could be jimmy, if lug nuts are tight, and wheel is balanced, the cv joint may be the culprit, are the boots torn ? if so, all the grease flew out, can you hear grinding when your turnning sharply ? back in the day when cars had drive shafts and the universal joints went bad, same thing, V-I-B-R-A-T-I-O-N ...............................

    Thanks, Ken. The cv joint at the mid shaft bearing was bad. It looked like the shaft had failed in the past but was not replaced in total. It didn\'t look like the mid bearing and inner shaft had ben removed because of the bearing being stuck in the carrier. They just replaced the outer shaft and outer cv joint and left the inner and bearing. I know they tried to remove the inner because I could see the damage done to the carrier. I needed to use a slide hammer, cv axle puller adapter, and a propanr torch to get the thing out but now the front end is smooth even while accelerating.

You may need to have tyres balanced and wheel alignment done.

SOURCE: 97 toyota celica outer cv boot replacement passenger side

have you undone the main hub bolt, if yes, there could be two different items holding the cv joint on, one is a small circlip in the joint end, or the other is just like an expanding metal ring again only small. what i had to do to change my one was take the driveshaft out (easier to see whats there) then gently (rubber hammer) hit the CV joint it should then fall off to allow you to change the CV joint. I spent over an hour trying to get the metal ring off, then after taking driveshaft off it was changed and back on in ten mins. Or you can go to a motor factors or similar and get a boot puller, my opinion hammer works better lol

SOURCE: 2004 camry, vibration right front

If the wheel is in balance and there is no other signs of what is causing the vibration than yes that cv joint should be chk. Is the strut ok? might want to chk. that too.

SOURCE: 1991 toyota camry front drivers side makes noise while driving

It's the left front wheel bearing. Take it to your favorite mechanic if you have one, any good tech can do it, but he/she could run into complications with a car of that age. (The hip bone's connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone's connected to the knee bone, etc, and there's probably a good share of corrosion down there).

SOURCE: how to replace a cv joint on a 2005 toyota

There are two types of cv joints used. One type bolts on the other you have to pop out. Do this by prying it out with a big screwdriver. A c-clip hods it in and it will pop out for you. When reinstalling be sure it seats back in.

Front left vibrates when accelerating is it a ball joint or a cv shaft


Most likely the axle needs to be replaced, if it only vibrates on accel. . A ball joint doesn't know if you are accelerating or not.

Unless you have AWD (all wheel drive), there is no driveshaft to check. But the inner CV (constant velocity) joints do wear out eventually and will give you a vibration under acceleration. If this problem occurs only when you are accelerating, it is time to replace the axle shaft that is worn. It could be just one or both. If the condition exists under any other circumstance, the suspension and steering components need to be checked as well as the front wheel bearings.
