Default Re: 97 Camry Vibrates crazy, Please help

Hello, I am new to this forum but I feel I can be of great help. I am
an L1 Master Tech and have over 30 years of experiance in automotive
repair.
Now, I will answer questions only based on my experiance. I believe it
would not be fair to my shop to use the computer programs there to
answer questions for the programs are expensive and are for the use of
the shop only.
Please understand, I am not be held responcible for anything I say
that may be incorrect, as I said, I will give answers based on my
experiance only.
As for the viberations on this Camry. I would recommend replacing the
drivers side axle. The inner joint is the most likely cause for the
viberation.
The outer joints go bad faster due to the stress caused to the boots
while turning but the outer joints rarely cause viberation while
accelerating.
The inner joint on the drivers side goes bad first on Camrys because
the shaft is shorter so the angles are greater when the suspension
moves up and down.
One other thing, if this has already be changed recently, then the new
one could be defective or the axle isn't pushed all the way into the
transaxle.
Most of the axles are cheap, under $100 at most automotive stores.
Installation is simple and very easy IF you have the proper tools. The
loss of fluid is also minimal.
Good luck to ya,
Nauvoo

Welcome, "nauvoo." Instead of just throwing parts at the problem,
might you outline an inspection / test to determine whether or not
the inner joint is indeed in need of replacement? Thanks! :^)
