Q: Replaced subframe. Vibration and noise during acceleration. Could it be the inner CV joint / axle?

asked by on

Replaced subframe. Vibration and noise when accelerating/in motion. Possibly cv joint/axle? The subframe was a recall. Not axle? Could bad subframe break have been the ultimate cause of deteriorated CV joints?

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The vibration and noise upon acceleration could possibly be an inner CV wobble, as the result of excessive play in the inner CV joint. A broken subframe may have caused the wear. Replacing the subframe and having the engine and transmission out of alignment could have the same vibration and noise result. If you would like to have this done, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the vibration and noise in person and follow through with repairs.
