Replace axle but not cv joints


"What we have here is a failure to communicate". The axle comes with CV joints on the end. You will be buying the rebuilt assembly. Both axle and CV joints will refer to the same part in a front wheel drive application.

Serious vibration when accelerating or holding speed; smooth when coasting


Hello,

If problem only occurs 'under power' sounds like a u-joint (driveline - rear wheel drive) or a cv-axle (front wheel drive). Check for excessive play, fluid, boot tear and breakage.

04 mountaineer brake light on, grinding and clicking noise front driver wheel


if the clicking noise happens when turning the wheels while driving, the most likely problem is the output axle shaft ( drive axle ) when the boots rips you loose grease and they start to grind and clicking and brake away. ( recommended to bring to an auto repair shop ) roughly price on drive axles are $125 for the part and 1.5 hours labor.

Now, if those noises could be duplicated without driving ( just moving the steering wheel side to side ) it could be a bad ball joint or pitman arm.

I really don't think that the brake light is related. I would go straight to your mechanic and avoid all pot holes and drive slowly.
Good luck.

2000 GMC Yukon 4WD. Has a whining sound coming from the front end when driving. Gets louder as you accelerate. Checked the transfer case and it is fine. Someone told me it could be the Actuator on the...


Does the truck have a lift kit on it?
- CV Axle spacers may be needed.
Have you recently replaced the CV Shafts?
- You may have gotten an axle that was too short / too long if you got a rebuilt axle.
It might be a worn pinion bearing in the front differential. Those can get louder with more speed. Check for excessive play in the yoke.

I would also check the hub bearings on each front wheel. Its more of a growling sound than a whining sound. I have done both of mine in the last 3 years on my 2000 GMC Sierra. They run about $60 at Napa with a 1 year warranty. You will need a slide hammer.
Jack the truck up so the wheel is off the ground and shake it. If you can move it around, its bad.

Replaced right front wheel bearing on my 2003 ford explorer 4x4 and when i drive it it seems like it is rocking or shaking do you know what the problem might be I did buy the wheel bearing at a junk yard


Hello,
The problem could be a siezed C.V. joint on the front axle. If it doesn't flex as your driving the stiffness will be transmitted into the drivetrain. Hope this helps.

1999 Subaru Forester has developed a shake when accelerating, esp. between 20-30 mph. Wheel bearings replaced - didn't help. Tires checked, balanced, etc. - didn't help. Front end allignment - didn't help....


Auto or 5-speed?
Subarus have CV axles in front and back. And a drive shaft from the center differential of the transmission to the back differential.

Yes, it could be the drive shaft or axle. If you turn the car hard left or right do you hear any noises - usually a 'clicking' sound? This is likely a CV axle in front.

Check the fluid in the transmission (Automatic) (info is in the Owner's Manual) to make sure it's full and/or gear oil in the front differential.

If it's an Automatic transmission, the fluid may need changed - NOT FLUSHED - if it has more than 30K miles since last changed.

I have a 05 Cadillac Escalade and the sterring wheel shakes when I'm driving on town streets and on highway. I brought it in for service....and explain to the service people my problem. All they did was...


Have them check the universal joints, front and rear, as well as the two on the front shaft if it is a four wheel drive model, the CV joints on the front axle if 4WD, the drive shaft(s) for straightness, mud in wheel recesses, and the rear end and front differential "chunks."

"Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds


That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

Grinding sound upon hard acceleration after new cv axle installat


Sounds like it should still be at that shop, something is not installed correctly, the cv shafts are splined on each end and must be fully indexed into the transmission (axle). Also they have to be indexed into the wheel bearing housing. Usually the parts will not go back together if they are not indexed correctly, so I would look into the tranaxle for broken pieces, low fluid, etc. Hope this helps.
