Check the turn table mounts are in good condition. Check that the table jaws are not worn and that the pion under the trailer is round and not worn. Check the torque rods and radius rod bushes on the rear diffs are in good condition and the rubber bushings are not flogged out.. The sensation you are experiencing may be the rear axle turning back and forth from loose spring shackles/ suspension mounting points and diff locating radius rods.

Our 1996 nissan terrano shakes out of control when going over 80kms on the motorway and its feels like it might tip over but doesnt as we reduced our speed. Do you think it could be the wheel alignment or...


Shakes? Not very specific. It could be a loose wheel, wheel out of balance, the balance weights may have come off one or more wheel rims (check for the marks on the rims inner and outer rim where they used to be).
As 1996 model, it could also be worn out suspension bushes.
If you drive on a straight road, and you change from accelerating, to decelerating, does the car skew (turn left or right slightly), this would indicate worn suspension bushes at the rear, acceleration pushes the rear axle forward, deceleration pulls it back, if there is wear (slop) in the rubber bushes, the changing alignment of the rear axle causes the car to "throttle steer". At cruise, this could potentially set up a sort of harmonic motion, and cause a form of "shaking".

I have a 2003 2500hd Crew Cab and it is making a grinding noise when I back up I was told it was the carrier bearing but I just replaced it three months ago and I checked it and it seems fine what else...


It may not be the bearing itself but the carrier when you back up the axle pushes it forward changing the angle. You may have worn bushings in your rear suspension allowing more travel than is designed.

The rear of my honda 03 crv clunks over bumps, the rear diff is mounted by 2 pancake type rubber bushings which seem to be worn but i am havind trouble finding these parts


check to see if your vehicle has a rear sway bar if it does then replace the end links and bushings they are usually the culprits of clunking noises and also check the rear shocks(or struts) for leaking or binding put your knee on the bumper and put all your weight in to pushing down on it and let it come back up on its own do this quickly with someone under it listening for the noise to present itself.If it was the rear drive axle mounting points this would also cause some handling issues.

I have a 1991 Subaru Legacy right hand drive wagon. I put in a new front axle assembly and I still have a knocking sound. Everything I have read with that sound says it is the cv joint. Someone told me it...


A CV joint - when going bad - is more of a clicking sound.. Not so much a knocking sound.. And tends to get louder when turning & accelorating..

Hope this helps !!
Rate me good ;o)

We have a 1998 ford expedition V8 4WD, 131K miles.Problem = when backing out of garage and going down drive (we have an incline and must turn wheel to the left) the rear end of the car makes a thunking...


this can be caused by excessive play in the drive axle button ends inside the differential, you can confirm this by putting the truck on a lift and pulling and pushing in and out on the tires, if there is more than a little movement the axles are worn out at the retainer "C" clips inside the diff.
