GENERALLY, WHEN A FRONT WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE SHUDDERS WHEN YOU ARE ACCELERATING, IT IS ONE OF THE INSIDE CV JOINTS THAT IS OUT. THERE ARE DRIVE SHAFTS THAT COME OUT OF THE TRANSMISSION, AND THEY HAVE BOOTS ON THE INSIDE CLOSE TO THE TRANSMISSION, AND BOOTS ON THE OUTSIDE CLOSE TO THE WHEELS. THE INSIDE BOOTS AND JOINTS TEND TO SHUDDER UPON ACCELERATION WHEN THEY ARE OUT. HOPE THIS HELPS.
