Assuming this is a front wheel drive axle (aka halfshaft), the CV joint and boot are what fails. You will hear a crunching/snapping noise when accelerating especially on a curve and you may also see grease spinning out from a torn boot.
Need to know year, make , model, front axle or rear axle to help you.
If it is a front wheel drive vehicle, it could be your cv axle or bad struts. yes bad shocks could cause vibration ,but i know my car had a bad cv axle in it a while back. the problem was the cv axle was broke in 2. Take it to an auto shop and ask them to test drive it and see if they can tell you what the problem might be. but if its a front wheel drive car, then i would bet money it is the cv axle but if its a rear wheel drive vehicle then ask them to check your universal joints(U-Joints.)
you know when you are not cotrolling the car.
A bearing going bad.
It is important to know the signs of a bad car part. If an AC clutch bearing going bad, the biggest indication would be the trouble driving with the AC on in the car.
bad cv axle joint or tire out of balance could be a lot of things have your auto shop check it out
If your car is not turning correctly, you will be able to tell either your CV axle or your control arm is bad. It will cost about $600 to fix either one, with parts.
It is possible, but you have to be stupid to drive with a bad axle because there would be more traction which could were off the axle which causes friction which could start a fire so it is possible. If your a cheap person and you don't want to change it, drive slowly and stay away from highways.Thank you,talk to me on ps3:the-godfather_o
Bad CV joint on the axle maybe?
I don't know the details but you may have a bent axle.
what are the signs of a damaged front axle and is it dangerous to drive a car with a damaged axle.
Overload? Bad carrier bearing? Severe bump? Metal fatigue? (age)
