you need to check your motor and transmission mounts, if they are worn or broken it causes stress on the axles

Did you buy the car new or used? If you bought it used it is possible that the frame is bent from an accident and that things are out of alignment which is stressing the axles. The other possibility is that you abuse the car and drag race!

I drive like an old man. Spent to much money when I was young driving them hard.

I bought the car used so I do not know if it was ever wrecked. I dont think it has been I will check the motor mounts. Thanks for you help
