1999 Toyota Corolla Q&A

1999 Toyota Corolla Question: Can wear in bushings in tranny housing where the CV shafts run cause vibration?

I have already tried balancing tires and even changing tires and rebalancing. But it still has a shimmy at speeds starting about 62 mph. The tires are not causing the problem but i noticed it seems to have some slop where the CV shaft fits in the transmission on both sides, probably a worn bushing and I was wondering if this will cause the shimmy. Only about 160,000 miles on it. It has the 1.8 liter with automatic tranny. -
Answer 1
They all seem to have slop there in the diff bushings as the mileage gets higher. I have seen axles cause vibration but I would look at the engine mounts first. -
Answer 2
i think the vibration is probably a minor bend in the wheel.try rotating rim to rear of car and see if that solves problem.if not than your hypothesis should be looked at.rs -
