So the anchor point for the inner joint on the axle just flops around? Really?
If its supposed to be under a load (accel, decel,) wouldn't it change the angle of the driveline by twisting up while its trying to turn the whole CV axle out to the hub?
It just makes no sense to me why that should move at all. The inboard joint on the axle allows movement in and out, the point the axle anchors to should only move rotationally. Even with the axle in place and the seal intact, the inboard joint moves up and down, left and right when locked into the output shaft. That can't be normal, can it?
I've replaced just about everything in the front suspension 2-3x over now, and am no closer to solving this vibration. I still have the pass side axle and bearing to do, but if that fails to eliminate the pop and the nasty vibrations I'm getting, idk where else to look.
None of the shops I've had look at it have any clue what to do other than throw parts at it and figure it will eventually go away. Its getting ridiculous.
