handling concern after CV/shaft replacement
Posted to Technical Discussion Forum on 8/17/2016 11 Replies

2002 Buick lesabre CV axle replaced with new from Autozone maybe the first mistake. seemed OK after repair 2 weeks ago. costumer states shortly after repair they noticed more so on back "Bumpy" roads, handling had been effected, described as a sense of over steering and or correction needed that wasn't present prior to the axle being replaced.

Just got back from road test i do feel what they stated. its not severe however definitely a noticeable concern. it was a simple replacement pop lower ball joint, alignment should not have been effected, ball joint feels sound. im going to start removing the axle hope im not jumping the gun. im leaning towards a defective CV/axle. im curious, has anyone here encountered this issue?
