I had inner and outer tire rods replaced but vibration still present. Mechanic told me motor mounts so I had motor and trans mount changed. Vibration and shaking still on driver side especially when I turn into a curb. What would you say the problem is?
Do you

Good evening,

Did anyone check the axle shaft? If you have a bad CV joint it will vibrate.

Also, did they check the strut to see if it is worn out and not keeping the suspension solid?

Good morning Roy!

I had the struts replaced last year so I will get them to check the CV axles. I think that's what it is also. Thanks!

Evening!

Update-I had my car checked out today and it is the cv axle. So I'm going to order both and get them changed out.

Thanks for your time and information!
