Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1997 Chrysler Concorde 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 141000 miles
My '97 concorde developed a vibration that seems to start at low speed and gets steadily worse as vehicle speed increases. While removing the driveaxles to replace them with rebuilt units I noticed that the inboard CV joint (the female-splined portion that slides onto the output shaft of the trans) was able to move axially about 1/8" inch while the shaft stayed steady. I double-checked the bearings in the trans shaft for play and found none. To be clear, there is no slop when I twist the axle while holding the other axle so the splines are fine (I think), so I'm wondering if this is a normal function of the axle assembly?
have the same problem?
