The past 2 weeks, cars been giving me a lot of noise issues..

When put in drive, no noise but when i start accelerate, I get the clunking noise, sounds like front right side, and it disappears.

When its cruising low speed, you hear this pulsing low grinding sound. Hard to describe.. and sometimes when I come to complete stop, I get another clunking sound.. As if something was throwing against something.

Other than that, the car drives well.

Transmission gets 3 bottle drain and fill every 3 month. I am on the newer synthetic fluid.

Im thinking of replacing the right axle and the inner joint. I do have a slight vibration issue around 50-60, like the steering wheel sort of shakes a bit, very minor. That makes me think of the inner joint issue..

Any suggestions or just get it replace and see what happens next ?

Im thinking axle too and might as well replace the inner one too..

Left axle is newish, about 1 yr old, no rips because I just did oil change over the weekend and the boots are not ripped.

Those bearings are probably shot from all the bad nyc roads
