The left I bought a cv axle shaft cause someone told me that was it
I want to no is it the axle or something else I don't want
To drive it I don't want to break any thing off I jack the
Front end up put it in first gear and turn the steering wheel
Left to right while the car was running but did not hear

Something from the shaft at the rotor end like it is something

With the wheels off the ground put the transmission in neutral then put one hand on the coil spring. Use the other hand to spin the wheel as fast as you can. See if you can feel the bad bearing in the coil spring?It should feel smooth. Compare each side to each other.

I just told you how read my above reply if the bearing is bad you will feel roughness in the coil spring while spinning the wheel. The bearing is in the cent of the hub around it. Some are integral with the with hub and some are pressed into the knuckle. Lets first see how the bearings are.
