normally, it is easier to replace the entire cv axle, an aftermarket one can be purchased fairly cheaply ie; checker, autozone, ect. If you are not fimiliar with working on cars, you might want to have a shop do this for you, but i will explain how to do this anyway. loosen the lugnuts on the wheel you will be removing, remove the large axle nut in the middle, this is usually an odd metric size, so you will need the appropriate socket, and will probably have to be a deep socket, also, this nut is tight, and is easier to do with air tools. jack up the vehicle on the side you will be working on, but not from under the control arm. remove the wheel, remove the tie rod end nut, separate the tie rod end from the steering knuckle, this is mose easily done with what is called a fork, it slips in between the ball joint & knuckle, you hit this with a large hammer, and it will pop loose, this can also be done by beating on the steering knuckle where the ball joint stud goes thru, do not beat on the ball joint stud itself, or you will destroy the ball joint, after this, you will need to separate the lower control arm ball joint from the control arm, again, you will need the fork, sometimes, you will need 2 different size forks, due the the different size ball joints, with a large pry bar, pry the lower control arm down, so it clears the lower ball joint, and pull the knuckle and strut out, you may have to pry the axle out of the knuckle, once this is out of the way, you will have access to the axle asembly. now, you will have to pry the axle out of the transmission, it is held in by a " c " clip, sometimes, you can just jerk on the axle, and it will pop out, if it does not, you will need to pry it out of the transmission by putting 2 pry bars, or large screw drivers, between the inner cv joint housing, and the transmission, and " pop " it out. now, simply install the new axle, and reverse the dissembly procedure.

What could cause a severe vibration in a 91 chevy lumina when running bt 50 or 60 or at a constant speed; doesnt vibrate when accelerating or braking;its not the tires just got 4 new ones?

Bent wheel, or worn suspension parts. I'm guessing it is the cv joints and/or stabilizer bar While I own a Chevy Lumina , I haven't had this particular thing happen to it, However I have had it happen in domestic and foreign before. there are many things that can cause your vehicle to shake. Tire Balance: Did you have them balanced when you had them replaced? Some companies now charge extra. CV Joints a broken CV joint will cause the tire to "wobble" Most of the time there will be a distinct clicking as you are turning coners..but by no means is that a rule. )if you suspect it to be a CV joint, get it to a mechanic pronto, not fixing a CV can lead to many more repairs such as a half axle or a whole new axle.) How is the suspension of your vehicle? Are your shocks/struts in good shape? I hope that helps! Good luck on your car!
