Wheel alignment and wheel balance are possibly the most neglected items on a car,they should be done when any work is carried out on front suspension.and thet are also the cheapest to get done when changing tyres.once done THEN you can see if its something more serious/expensive....

If your car still vibrates, send it back to the mechanic shop that installed CV joints. The alignment is a separate issue. Keep in mind that the wheels should be, at least perpendicular with the pavement and parallel to each other. If not then something is bended, or wear out. Could be a boll joint, tie rod end, or bushing …

I have a vibration at 70 miles per hour


if the wheel alignment is faulty ( castor wobble ) at 70 mph there is no way that you can describe it as a vibration as it virtually rip the steering wheel out of your hands. If it is a torque converter problem then at around 3850-4025 rpm stationary there will be a vibration of the vehicle and engine The sort of vibration that you are experiencing at 70 mph will come from a drive line problem. If rear wheel drive then it could be faulty "U" joints, worn slip joint or failed rear engine mount
If front wheel drive it may be cv joints or bent drive shafts,wheel bearings or brake callipers not moving freely on the mounting bolts.

Tin can front end noise


Front wheel drive cars have CV joints sounds like yours need replacing. Does it do it when you turn? Turn wheel all the way left an then right do you still hear it? If so joints are bad. May also be wheel bearing but my guess is CV joints

Severe vibration in front end at 60 mph. steering wheel also vibrates even at lower mph.


If it's front wheel drive the "C.V. Joints". The Constant Velosity Joints connect the front wheels to the drive shafts (R & L). Call around to front end alignment shops for quote about $175 to $225 +$130 if four wheel drive, more labor. Listen if is is noiser (clicking) in turns, than driving straight, if so CV's are bad.

The vibration is felt in the seat from 55 - 65 mph, when accelerating. I have new tires, just balanced and rims straightened, so no damage. Is it possible to be the front axles? The passenger side has some...


Unless you have AWD (all wheel drive), there is no driveshaft to check. But the inner CV (constant velocity) joints do wear out eventually and will give you a vibration under acceleration. If this problem occurs only when you are accelerating, it is time to replace the axle shaft that is worn. It could be just one or both. If the condition exists under any other circumstance, the suspension and steering components need to be checked as well as the front wheel bearings.

Car shaking and vibrating at 55 mph. and does it again at 65-70.


Hi:
Since your BMW 540 series is a rear wheel drive car, a common cause of that sort of vibration is often the U joints on your drive shaft. The vibration often only shows up and certain speeds.

It isn't a particularly expensive repair, but is something to have checked out!

Noise w/front left tire when turning slightly right but NOT left


the grinding grating rattling annoying sound is yor axles (velocity joint) it could be a simple thing as the boot rubber poping out and the grease spilled off or the bearing is shelling. In any case have the joint repaired or replaced. After this you will need to align as the changing or removing of the joint messes the alignment up.

Front end vibration


on both my Camrys, i had this problem. You could really notice it when you were driving down the road going 40-60 mph and punch the gas - car would vibrate, let off the gas - vibration stops, punch the gas - car vibrates...... On both, it was the CV joints. It is much easier to just replace the drive axles (with the new cv joints and boots already installed). For my last replacement, i think thy were only around $65 each.
