What was the original problem and, did you change entire diff/axle assembly or only one drive axle? (which side?) Before knowing any of this, I suggest you re-check your work to make sure everything is secure and that nothing has gone together crooked.

    You did not answer anything I asked...I need that information in order to help.....Being here, I can't see what you did!!! (or why, or how)

  • Richard Scordino Jun 27, 2009

    You still did not say if you are talking about the left or right side axle...but in mentioning "splices together" I believe you are talking about the front driveshaft, the up and down movement being at the slip joint? If so, both driven joints (the ones with the straps on them that connect to the transfer case and differential need to be 90 degrees apart...Best way to picture this is that if the rear joint is horizontal, the front should be vertical. Also,excessive play at the slip joint may be due to wear on the splines, in which case you need to replace the driveshaft.

  • Richard Scordino Jun 27, 2009

    yup, You got it!!! Good thing you mentioned the "splice" there aren't any on axles!!!

  • Richard Scordino Jun 27, 2009

    Was that thank you its working or thank you I guess I need a different driveshaft?

Your CV joint was pulled out of position most likley, not fun to put back together. If you can move the axle up and down while it's installled, this is what happened. Sorry to here this, I just went throught this on Saturday, luckily I caught it in time!

Why would I need to replace front axle shaft in my car?


symtons when you make a left or right turn if you hear a clicking noise that is a bad axle either side.

Changing front axle assembly or wheel hub or both? Either way, need torque specs for all bolts.


you've got a bad axle shaft in the front and possibly a bad bearing in the hub. 4/wheel drive makes the front axle actually work. Theys no real pressure on these shafts when in 2/wheel drive.

My front of my car vibrates like crazy everytime I accelerate and turn right but when I let off the has it stops


Sounds like maybe a busted motor mount or transmission mount, or a worn out cv drive axle.Look under the front of the car at the drive axles there is 4 rubber boots 2 on each axle inner boot and outer boot.See if one or more of the boots is torn or split.

Vibration


you need to isolate this better. does the vibration occur only when the car is moving or do you feel it when sitting in park and racing the engine a little.=lock into something on the engine. do you feel it in the steering wheel= front tire bad,out of balance,bent wheel.does it seem more like you feel it in the seat like the car itself is vibraitng=look at the rear tires. check that all wheel lug nutts are tight.turning corners and acellerating at the same time the vibration could be a CV axle joint. the axles could also cause a vibration.may have to be put on a lift and see if it vibrates when running of the ground. it can be hard to find .

Clicking noise from drivers side front also big vibration over 30 mph. It is a 1999 GMC Jimmy 4 wheel drive. When you slow down it clicks.


you most likely have a bad axle. i would check the axle boots to see if they are ripped or if there is any play in them. also the vibration could be comming from the axle or a bad tie rod or ball joint

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.

2003 subaru outback engine vibration in gear


Did you recently replace the axles on the vehicle? This problem commonly occurs in Subarus when you replace the axles with non-OEM parts. The only fix seems to be to swap out the axles for OEM parts. Search the forums at subaruoutback.org for many stories of the same condition and some theories on why non-OEM axles cause the problem.

Front end vibration


It sounds as though your car has two seperate problems. The first problem with the vibration that goes away when you let off the gas pedal is caused by a bad INNER CV joint. It only vibrates when you are accelerating because that is when the joint is under stress. Your vehicle has two axles, each with an inner and an outer joint. My suggestion is to have a competent shop determine which is the bad side and replace the entire axle. The second vibration which occurs at any speed is most likely cause by either a bad tire, or a bent rim.
