    inner joint lateral play is common issue for this vibration.
    remove the wheel, remove the caliper and rotor, remove the axle nut, remove the brake hose mounting and abs if equipped, remove the 2 bolts through the strut and pull the spindle towards you to remove the axle splines from the hub.
    using a suitable tool, pop out the axle from the trans axle. make sure you use a pan to catch the fluid.

    make sure you get it aligned when you are done as you have effected the camber adjustment.
