Re: Hub assembly axle nut torque.

Does the vibration change as you turn corners? Usually if a wheel bearing/hub, it will alter sound as the bearing is loaded an unloaded.

Does it stall out if it just sits (once it starts), or does it have to be driving?

Can you pull the codes to see if anything shows up (or do the 'keydance' if your year supports it).

No drag link on a rack and pinion setup (like the WKs).

If it is a whining differential it can either be the front or the back. The rear is more likely, but they will both whine.

Re: 07 hemi driveline vibration problem

I'd check the wheel bearings. Does the sound change at all when cornering as the bearing is loaded and unloaded?

These can produce a low hum and produce a vibration when really bad.

Re: Help! Slipping in front somewhere.

Start with the wheel speed sensor. This could cause your problem, and the computer is already telling you it is bad.

Not too bad of a job and a relatively cheap part.
