You can pick up these parts at any local auto parts store. Napa, Auto Zone, Knects, or whatever auto parts store that is located nearest you.

It is best to price at least three as each will (may) have different prices.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

My Father In-law has a 95 F350 4x4. He hasnt been able to drive it in some time. When he drives and reaches 40+ mph the cab starts to shake pretty bad. the only thing that stops the shaking is to almost...

Hello, My thoughts are that someone needs to look underneath the truck from the front bumper to the rear axle. There are so many things that can cause this.

If the problem came after the truck was sitting a long time, you can have flat spots on the tires or rust spots on the rotors. As the rust builds up where moisture was held by the brake pads, the rotors will chaff against the pads until the rust is worn away. If the rust is thick enough, there will be rubbing and shaking without applying the brakes.

Check your U-joints. The U-joint to the front axle from the Transfer case seems to go out more from sitting than through use. Check the front hubs and CV joints and of course the rest of the U-joints. Look at the driveshafts for little square rust patches where balance weights fell off.

While driving at 40mph and shaking, slip the gearshift to Neutral and note if the shaking stops. Of course the truck will eventually stop, but you can feel if the shake was from the engine "Chugging" and better tell what direction the shake is coming from.

Check your tierods for excess play. I hope my solution helps you. I would be interested in knowing the end result.

Hello. Recently on my 2009 CRV I have noticed some slight diffrences in the transmission. Lately I can feel every single shift, I can even feel it shifting into 4rth and 5th gear. I can't hear anything...

by the sound of it i could be a problem with 1 of the driveshafts maybe a u-joint. have it double checked at another shop. My knowledge of those CRV's reminds me that the bushings thar hold up the rear end of that suv are also prone to wear . temperature can also cause unwanted noises. maybe an oil spray me b the cure u need.

Crv noise on full lock

The most likely cause for this is worn CV joints. The CV or constant velocity joints on your driveshafts will emit a clicking type of noise when the steering is turned to full lock. If this is describing what you are hearing it is a classic symtom of CV trouble.

Otherwise noise when applyiing brakes or shifting gear is usually associated with worn ball joints or steering/lower/upper arm linkages.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Driveshaft is making noises

i presume that is a front wheel drive vehicle. you likely have a cv joint that is failing (constant velocitiy joint is the full name). if you raise the vehicle and turn the tire back and forth you should be able to tell which one is failing. rear wheel drives would likely need a universal joint replaced. replace both at the same time tho.

1997 Honda CRV - Engine just dies while driving down the road.

I had that same problem a while ago. I changed the coil and the ignition and I have had no problems since. Give that a try and see if it works. I have a 1997 honda crv myself and it seemed to work.

Some vibrating felt when driving. I checked the U joints and they seemed to be okay. When checking the U joints I noticed I was able to move the driveshaft back and forth in park and neutral. I think it is...

It is normal for a little bit of movement in the driveshaft if the U-joints are good. Get your tires balanced and see if that solves your vibration problem.
