Front end vibrations when turning at slow speeds
Hey guys, my newest problem surfaced in the form of a popping sound that vibrates the front end when either backing out of a parking spot or turning while accelerating at low speeds. The problem is evident when turning either left or right and especially in reverse.
so here's what I've ruled out:
jacked up the front end and turned both wheels by hand at full lock; no resistance, u-joints appear OK.
grabbed the rear drive shaft and tried to shake it; no play whatsoever.
I will comment that those rear joints are not in the best shape but there's still no play in the shaft.
removed front drive shaft; problem still persists.
While this problem does disappear when driving in a straight line or at high speeds, I still don't feel comfortable driving it as failure of some component seems imminent.
Anything I missed? suggestions?
