vibration in the drivers side front wheel

Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 3 Days


I recently had my front struts, ball joints, and sway bar bushings replaced and a front end alignment done on my honda accord ex V6. Before the work was done I had two new tires put on the rear with no problems, but after the work was done and the two front tires were also replaced there is a shake or vibration not felt to much in the steering wheel but more in my but which led me to believe it was the rear even though it felt like it was in the front drivers side in the floor. I then took it back in and they moved the back wheels that i had no problem with before to the front to determine if it was a tire problem, they determined there was a hop in the tire so I then got the tires replaced, still had a vibration. Then they test drove it and said it was fine so i drove it for a while but then my brakes started to pulse and there was a shake in the steering wheel as well, so I replaced the rotors and pads on the front because of the ones on the drivers side were worn and got to hot at one point but all of the other brakes and rotors were fine. Now the vibration or shake is still there and no one can seem to determine what is causing it.

I have built a few hondas myself and the first mistake you made was getting a two wheel alignment or only adjusted the front, leaving the rear unaligned. Then you replaced the rotors which ultimately throw off the front alingment and still leaving the rear unaligned. All the modification you made are good, however, you never properly aligned all four suspensions. This is the issue you are having at best case. At the worst case, were are experiencing that wear and tear that happens over time in the half shafts meeting the transmission. Even if you replace the half shatfs this will not matter as its going to be the teeth on the transmission gearing that has been grinded down. I would recommened changing the rear rotors and reallinging all four corners than reasses your issue. If the pulsating is still evident, you are now considing the half shafts and motor/tramsmission mouts and associated gears.

Sorry i mispoke i didnt mean just a front end alignment I got all four aligned and balanced.

and also the pulsating went away when I replaced the front rotors and pads now I am dealing with the vibration issue in what feels like to me to be the front drivers side. My best guess was a bent axle or rim, possibly the wheel bearing is no good? Thank you by the way for your input I really appreciate it.

lith the car of the ground a little and pull/push the tire that you think is causing the issues. If the tire has "play" in it and makes noise while your doing this, than its going to be either the wheel bearing or the half shaft joint to the transmission. Either way, both is not good and replacing the shaft will fix that that. The rim is something else, however, the tire shop would have noticed it leaving me to believe its not the rim. The bent shaft would cuase a vibration. Another thing to consider is a combination of things all within the suspected area. I'm thinking you  need to replace the both half shafts and re allign the front.
