    wobble low rpm acceleration only

    hi everyone 2 days ago started expieriencing a wobble low rpm starting at like 40 mph, only under slight acceleration, new tires as of 2 months ago and everything's been fine. high speed no wobble above 4000 no wobble, just slow acceleration low end of gear to like 3500 really noticeable 3rd gear, thinking cv joints?????

    I agree, sounds like wheel bearing(s) or a failing CV joint.

    Just an update this issue was the drive axle tripod bearings gone bad, brought to studio at first they said nothing wrong at cv joints I said I give you permission to remove that axle so sure enough that was it, wobble only on acceleration tripod joint bearings
