Is there a solution besides buying new CV's? It's not as bad as most people seem to describe it. But it's noticeable and annoying. I can't seem to figure out how to get a vibration damper to stay on them. Any experience in this out there?
There are new rotors, pads, bearings, tires, struts, lug nut studs. All of which i had no problem with. My cv boot was torn and i decided to get new shafts. I replaced them and then the vibration started. Im not dumb enough not to consider the other possibilities. I know its in the shafts and was wondering if anyone else had this problem and fixed it without buying different shafts.
I think im just going to buy new ones though. I've tried everything i know for two weeks now to no avail.
Rock Auto has CV shafts at the best price I've seen,,,, and they are NEW; not rebuilt. Even with shipping they are still much cheaper than AutoZone/ AdvanceAuto.
Installation is not difficult. You need the 32mm socket. I had a good air impact; a cheap one probably won't do it. Electric wrench probably OK, too. Bang on the lower arm, and it will drop (after you remove the ball joint bolt).
I know how to do it. I did the entire car myself, ecu remap myself and now I'm working on the suspension. My cv's are Cardone from rock auto, and i was just wondering if someone had a quick fix and if not, i will send these back and get new ones.
If you're smart enough to remap an ECU then you have to know that there is no fix for an unbalanced axle assy. It is theoretically possible to attach or remove weight in an area of the hubs to correct balance... I would check wheel balance first... Normally the axles don't have enough radial torque to cause severe vibration unless they are malfunctioned at factory
Your statement would be correct but, a heart surgeon cannot necessarily perform brain surgery. If you know what i mean. I know what you mean by smart enough to remap, but you'd be surprised what some peoples methods and techniques are. The best way to learn is from others experience. Tires are balanced and rotated weekly. Thanks for the advice though. I think i will deal with the returning the product method.
