Feeling A Bit Wobbly?

If your front-wheel-drive vehicle feels a bit wobbly on the road, it may involve the driveline (which is composed of the components that transfer power to the wheels). For instance, an axle joint failure can lead the spinning shaft to slip slightly and run out of center. This condition will be felt as a side-to-side wobble at lower speeds and a vibration at highway speeds. If a driveline wobble occurs on a read-wheel-drive vehicle, the most likely culprit is a bent axle (which may be damaged in an accident or a hard run-in with a curb). More likely, however, a wobble in read-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive vehicles will develop in the drive shaft, usually as a result of universal joint problems.
