CV going out?

wifes' 94 legacy turbo. The steering wheel rocks back and forth when car starts rolling. I was thinking CV going bad or bent axels? Any thoughts or previous experience.

This is a non responsive group. Anybody got a web site to get info on Subaru Legacy?

Re: CV going out?

Well, I haven't had a soob in a while, and never one that new, but I'll take a shot. I would think bent rim, then bent axle (outer stub if they're like most cv front ends I've seen), or maybe worn bearings in the hub where the axle presses thru.
I don't think a bad cv would present itself in that way.(unless maybe the wheel bearings were really bad) I had a friend push his cv until it broke, he stuck it in 4wd and drove home powered by the rear, the brat still tracked fine.

Hey, thanks for the input. Think rims are OK. I am wondering if bearings are gone. Thanks again for input.

If you're wondering if the wheel bearings are gone, you should be able to jack up the front, grab the tire at 12 and 6, and see if it rocks. If it does, you got bad bearings. Grab a hold of the CV shaft and see if there's much play.
