Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

It sounds as if you have a throttle sensitive vibration or shake. If it's throttle sensitive then the issue is in the driveline, assuming it's not actually a driveability problem you're feeling.

What model is the vehicle?

some time steering goes left and right so hard i do allignment to
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

Does it pull one way or the other or the steering wheel angle changes on acceleration versus deceleration?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sir
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

The suspesion issue may be related to the vibration/shake. A shake that is felt on acceleration and goes away or lessens when you let off the throttle is caused by driveline issues. The most likely cause is a worn inner CV joint, but anything causing shaft misalignment will contribute to the shake and joint damage. You may have one or more motor mounts that are loose and causing the powertrain to move excessively.

What you're feeling with the suspension is almost surely a loose lower control arm bushing which is causing thrust angle to change under torque. This could be contributing to the shake and should be repaired first.

thanx
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

You're welcome!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i contact with my machanic i think i do bushing to
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

The best thing to do would be to have it on a hoist and check for play in the bushings, look for physical damage, and it can also be brake torqued in reverse and drive while watching for excessive movement in the bushings. They won't be too expensive to replace.

i fix ball joint passenger side table neww drive shafts bushing both side
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

If the CV shafts were new then they shouldn't be an issue unless they've since been damaged by another problem, but if they were remanufactured shafts then you may still have an issue with one of the inner joints.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but sir i change twice driver side
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
is it with motor mounts for skakes ?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

If you only replaced the left axle the problem coudl still be with the right side.

Loose motor mounts will allow the powertrain to shift and cause a shake and inner CV joint damage.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but with the old shaft same problem and with new shaft same problem i think shafts is good
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

As I mentioned motor mounts and loose suspension parts will also cause this, the right side shaft appears to have not been replaced, the other loose parts may have damaged the replacement shafts on the left side, and if you're buying aftermarket parts there is a good chance of a repeat issue.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
k sir ill check mounts and let u know sir
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

Great!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but sir what u think its front or rear mount or its transmission?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

Any engine or transmission mount will contribute and all should be checked.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

All of the items I mentioned need to be inspected. What specifically has been done?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

The control arms and CV shafts still need to be addressed.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

Does it still have the throttle sensitive pull?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no but it shutters at 50 and 80
and shakes to
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

The shake is throttle sensitive, correct?

You're feeling a shake and not an issue in the trans or engine?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
engine i dont know trans is kk
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

You may actually be feeling an engine miss rather than a shake. It would be a good idea to check for fault codes, misfire monitor can also be watched while the problem is happening to see if you're actually feeling a misfire.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
hi sir its torque converter problem ??
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
is it thortle body sensor ?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

The torque converter clutch can cause a shudder when it's engaged.

I doubt you're feeling anything caused by a sensor on the throttle body.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but what u think it could be sur
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
an really fedup
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sir
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

There are many things it could be which we've discussed. I don't believe all the suspension issues have been dealt with, you're using aftermarket remanufactured ales which are often bad out of the box, and one side hasn't been replaced as far as I am aware. There seems to be the possibility that you're actually feeling a transmission or engine related issue rather than a shake or vibration. If you're unsure I'd recommend having a shop take a look at it or at least take a technician for a ride to get an opinion rather than continuing to replace parts which is going to get expensive. You might consider having a shop diagnose the issue and do the work yourself, diagnosing it shouldn't exceed more than an hour minimum diagnostic charge.
