Vibrations :Please Help:

The problem i am having with my car is when there is load on the car like when i am accelerating i have very high vibrations to the point where i cant drive its only while i am accerating if i take ti up to like 30 km/h or w/e when i let go of the gas no vibrations only happens while accelerating.

I was under the car today i was assumeing drive shafts (both + halfshaft replaced last summer) they looked good to me i checked mounts they they seemed fine i spun the wheels nothing it also makes a bit of a noise while accerating also

So if anyone can help me out i would appreciate it im thinking it may be the bearing in the half shaft.

you didnt read anything wrong. He most likely has shifted belts or a bubble on his tire(s). Does the steering wheel just go back in fourth without you touching the wheel?

i've seen unbalanced axles cause a vibration while accelerating...they actually were aftermarket "stage 3" shafts, shook like a **** when you accelerated, most likely b/c they didn't have the little rubber balancer on them....b/c the stock, balanced axles didn't shake at all while accelerating.

I had the same problem. It sounds like your axles. It shakes when you accelerate, but as soon as you push in the clutch, the shaking it goes away? Then you have unbalanced axles. I got mine replaced and it's been a smooth ride ever since.

do they have a rubber balancer on them?

You get someone to drive the car while its jacked and you can check if the shaft has a wobble to it

ive never seen one fall off.. but i suppose its not imposible, but not common.

Clicking sound may be your inner cv joint. Like I said.. raise it up and take a listen to the axle
