Question about 1991 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Wheel Shaking i recently installed a new passanger side CV shaft and everything went great, now 4 months later as soon as I hit 50mph it is vibrating my whole front end? I got out and kicked both front tires and the passanger side moves left to right about 3cm, none of the others do that. I checked all my lugs and my cv shaft nut and everything is tight, I am stumped!!! Please help.

Sounds like the tie rod is worn. It is common when a CV shaft goes bad that it wears out the tie rods as well. the tie rods hold the wheel in posiition and that why you get the movement 3cm left to right. The tie rod is on the upper part of the wheel hub and if you grab it where it meets the wheel, give it a good shake. If there is movement replace it.

My 97 4wd explorer shakes and makes a clunking noise when I get above 50 mph I've replaced both front wheel bearings and did fine for about a month then started shaking and grabing on the driver side only....


It is usually the CV joints in the drive shaft(s) that are worn, and make this noise.
I would look at your CV joint boots, are they dirty and full of grease on the outside. Does the inner wheel well have grease slung onto it ?
Replacing the drive shaft is a difficult repair. I would have a reliable auto repair center give an estimate.
Please let me know what you find.

Steering wheel violently shakes.


that is usually caused by bad engine mount this condition usually changes the distance of the cv joint and the differential which cause the cv joint to shake. also check your ball joints.

Steering wheel vibrating - shaking


Could be tie rods,bearings, cv joint. or just need fluid in the power steering. I have even had a brake stick just enough to cause a vibration.
