I'll check the rotors, but wouldnt that cause a vibration constantly and even more during braking? I dont have to push the clutch in for the vibration to stop, I just have to take my foot off the gas. Also noticed that when I'm on a hilly backroad and I take an incline or come off a decline to level surface, I can feel the vibration when the suspension is compressed. Also very faintly when I crest a hill and the suspension expands. Thanks for the response.
the bearings had no up and down play but did have a slight side to side play which lead me to find the leak in the steering rack. Should I inspect them more thoroughly than just by that? Does that inner 'housing' on the axle just contain a cv joint in there or is there more to it, cause the housing is pretty big. I get a feeling this might be where the problem is. the passenger axle that is
Yeah I wasnt gonna take it apart I was just gonna replace the whole axle this weekend. When I remove it will it be more evident that its possibly what was causing the problem? Being that it shakes alot, if it were say the trannys axle input bearing, wouldnt it leak alot when driven?
I would think it would leak yes. Just had a thought...A worn Engine or Transmission mount could cause it to shake too.
Well I changed the right axle and its fixed. The inner joint had alot of play when I pulled it out. Thanks for ur input.
