Which CV axle to replace to fix vibration?

Asked by Jan 29, 2017 at 12:15 PM about the 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora 4 Dr 3.5 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 Olds Aurora vibrates badly under acceleration, particularly at 50 mph or higher. The vibration is much worse when turning right on freeway bends. CV joints don't feel like they have significant side to side play. Could it be CV inners binding? Which side axle is likely to be the problem?

Hard to say without inspecting it. Unless you want to just throw parts at it, change them out and see if the vibration goes away. I'd personally take the car to your mechanic. Have the shop check the CV joints, struts, ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings, wheel balance, etc.
