Only other thing it could be is either the upper and or lower suspension ball joints or the suspension arm bushes, but I haven't seen any problems with those except if a car has been in a smack Hope this helps Malc Scotland In article <38c61c66.4284338nopsam.together.net>, macmahonnopsamther.net wrote: > Hi All, > After blowing out a CV joint, I brought my car into the shop for a > new muffler.
