What damage could I've done when replacing the driver side Hub Assemble?
On my 96 Olds. I replaced the passenger side hub assembly September of last year and low and behold the driver side started to act up last month so since I was short on time I reverted to using brute force to remove the 16 year old hub assembly and ended up nicking the CV Axel and had to have the threads redone on it because I got into the them with the sledge hammer I was using to remove it. I was able to get the new hub on but I have been having a lot of front end problems since then. Also I noticed that the passenger side control was bent and I was able to acquire a replacement on from Rock Auto and I will be replacing it this Friday. So now to the problem I am asking about. That problem is a really bad vibration that shake the entire front end of the car along with a whining growling noise when driving straight and turning left or right. The only way to make the noise go away it to make a really sharp left hand turn but right when you start to straighten the wheels out the noise returns. Also it hasn't affected the transmission any at all so I'm starting to wonder if I may had damaged a drive axle of one on the newer hubs I have is either bad or defective. So with what I am talking about could I have done some axle damage or does it sound like a problem with a hub. Thanks.
