In Topic: my front end shaking at 50mph

17 July 2008 - 04:05 PM

To any one who has had the same problem
I have had the car in 2 garages and they both said its the wheels thats buckled
I then tried original focus wheels which were perfect condition and it was still shaking
I got spacers on the wheels and it was still shaking
Replaced the wishbone arm and it was still shaking
So i booked it in at Jennings ford and after 1 day they rung me and said
the driveshaft bearings were dry and because of that it was wearing out the whole thing
Also the cv joint was nakerd
So they quoted me 550.00 and said they are 85 % sure its the driveshaft and cv joint
Just today i got the car back and its fiiiiiiiiiiiiixxxxxxxxxxxxedddddddddddd
NO MORE SHAKING THANK GOD, ALL the stress that ive gone through
Its fixed
Atleast i got the garage that i bought it from to pay 350.00 towards the repair
I know it would have been loads cheaper from a little garage but at the end of the day you get what u pay for
So if your car is shaking when u press the acelerator in 3rd from 45 mph to 60, also in 4th or 5th at any speed
and its shaking, and not much shaking through the steering wheel
GET YOUR DRIVESHAFT CHECKED OUT.

i did get the car down from 2395 to 1900.if i knew it was shaking before i bought it i would have suggested them to fix it properly so i think its pretty fair for them to replace one side even though i know they should have fitted the other side too! when i get the other side done (shouldnt cost more than 50.00) and is still not fixes i will deffinitely take it back.
