assistance with vibration that starts after 45 mph and disappears at 70
Recently while heading out on a trip from PA to WY and blew out the lower ball joint on the drivers side, luckily in the gas station parking lot and not on the highway. 4 days and $1700 later I was back on the rd and instead of hunting heading home after the unexpected departure of funds lol.
Once home also replaced the shocks on both sides of the front, which brings the talley of replaced items on the drivers side to the lower ball joint, UCA (complete assembly), CV Axle, and Tie rod.
However, Know I have a vibration that has developed at 45 mph and then disappears at 70. I do have leaks from both front axle seals and the pinion seal on the front diff, but am curious if anything else could be causing this?
I plan on replacing the seals this weekend (weather dependent) and in all probability the lower ball joint on the passenger side (supposed to arrive tomorrow). I am hypothesizing at this point that the CV axle on the other side could have been damaged or that it could be one of the axle bearings, but the vibration seems to be coming more from the passenger side front then the drivers. As always, suggestions are def welcome as I am at a loss at the moment and don't relish the idea of completely disassembling the front diff if I don't have to.
