When u start to accelerate the right front tire seems to bounce and the cv joint hits the frame. I have replaced the cv joint but no luck, my abs light also turns on and the traction control turns off. Also where the cv joint enters the transmission it got alot of play.
thanks for your time.

Jumping tire- bad strut(most likely), loose control arm bushings, bad tie rod, bad ball joint, bent wheel, bad wheel bearings. What do you mean a lot of play where it enters the transmission? In and out or up and down. If it is moving up and down, it should be leaking fluid, is it? If so, that's bad mkay?

Its not leaking fluid but it is making cut marks into my frame. So im guessing its moving up and down. Is there anyway I could get a diagram to look further into it?
Also tomorrow I could send some pics if that would help in any way. Much appreciated.
