front end vibration

so recently my front end started a vibration while under pressure or accelerating. figured it was my passanger axle since a boot was torn and grease was splattered all around my wheel. while i was at it i also changed out my passanger upper ball joint along with getting my tires rebalanced and the car aligned and replaced the drivers side motor mount. still has a vibration, not as bad but its still there. wandering if any one has ran into this problem before and may have some input or advice. also my driver side axle was replaced during the swap which was only 2 months ago. i plan on changing the drivers axle out for a new one since it was a reman'd one and getting a new half shaft this weekend but again just looking for any advice or input. thanks in advanced!!!

Re: front end vibration

Have the rotors turned or replace them. If the screws that the hold the rotors down are not there, very rarely it will cause vibration.

Re: front end vibration

Does this only occur during acceleration? I've seen this problem a few times, caused by a loose intermediate shaft. Check the bolts holding the intermediate shaft to the back of the block and make sure they're tight.

Re: front end vibration

I've also been having a similar problem. More during more aggressive acceleration and usually most noticeable between 30-50mph. Is your issue similar. I also recently replaced both axles. Thanks for any input!

Inspect your intermediate shaft. Mounting bolts could be loose or it could even be slightly bent. I've seen this cause this problem on multiple occasions.
