~~~~06 Chevrolet cobalt ls~~~~
So, i got my car back from a piece of shit dealer that motor swapped my car. many many issues and problems, so i am stuck on this last issue. First, my car doesnt really shake going down the road, it just wobbles a little, no steering wheel shake. So i took my time to slow down the car and listen and all, figured out it was coming from the right side. (just going to skip the the juicy bits.) So i jack my car up, take off the tire and full strut assembly. I then proceed to grab the cv axle and wobble it up and down, and it DOES MOVE. Now this is where the cv axle connects into the transmission onto the spline shaft. This is where I am stuck at. I took the cv axle off, got a new one, running into same issue. So i started back over and yanked the axle back off. noticed the snap ring on the transmission shaft looked a little weird, so i took it off. Its not pefectly circular and it has flat parts and stuff around its circumference. This is where i am currently at and asking for anyone help, or more info. Wasnt sure if the Snap ring needed replacing or if i need that whole spline shaft drive thigamajigamabob or if anyone knows what it is! =D
(where the axle connects to the spline shaft on the transmission is what i could very easily move, up and down nonetheless, about a half of an inch. Just wanted to make sure that was clarified!)
I appreciate The reads and all info and replies in advance!
