I have a vibration in the front end when I accelerate past 40 mph. It stops when I let off off of the accelerator.

Tires out of balance or bad front drive axle.

Kenny Mansfield

I would agree with the problem with the axle, such as worn CV joints. Also, it could be worn tie rod ends or worn ball joints. Both are consumable parts and can easily be diagnosed at a reputable tire center. First and cheapest: have the tires balanced and rotated. While it is up on the rack, have the wearable joints checked.

Best Answer

Also have the tire shop check for out of round tires which balancing will not fix.

Kenny Mansfield

Exactly right. As tires wear down (especially lower quality tires), they will get out of round and be unable to be balanced. It makes for a permanent vibration until replaced.
