slight vibration under power when driving
I have a 2016 Subaru Forester 67000 miles on it.
Recently had rt. front wheel bearing hub and axle replaced for
a noise, found it to be a bad axle. my Question is now with new tires and
new rt front Im driving and I noticed a slight vibration while under power. I let
off the gas vibration goes away, back on the gas it comes back. more
noticeable at speeds up to 50. any ideas?
It's a drive wheel, so you might have a suspension or steering problem; possibly not repaired or aligned properly when they did the right front replacement. could be a defective CV joint or even a bad motor mount.
Hmmm.... Alignment nor engine mount are likely problem areas here. I’d definitely start with rebalancing to tire. If still shaking rotate to rear to see if shake moves. If so, you have a bad new tire bead; if not probably a bad new axle. Also could be a bent wheel, so check when rebalancing. New axles have a fairly high failure rate, as do new wheel bearings...especially if hammered in or overtorqued. Good luck.
Had an alignment and had the tires re balanced. rides like a new car thank you very much.
Realignment was probably unnecessary, it sounds like you had an unbalanced wheel. Sometimes new axles need to break in too.
