Can a bad joint cause a vibration? I think I've had a new vibration starting up... if so I'm guessing the joint is bad too... so prolly need a new axle.

If I need an axle, where do I get a good deal?

No longer exists, and it is the no-HD trans so a different axle on the drivers side IIRC, I got so few parts, my brother selected a different car for his buddy (when you work at some NAPA's, you can only buy parts for 2 cars....)

This has happened to me twice. I actually got mine at Napa. They are like 100 bucks and come with a lifetime warranty. The second time mine went out they gave me another new one for free.. I just had to find someone to put it in..
