Is this a nutty idea? I got an intermittant rumble up front, I think right side, on my 2008 Forester. It vibrated one day on the expressway until i pulled off and made a few left and right turns, but I really have no idea what caused it. Since then I hear a bump like a loose shock mount over bumps on certain roads at certain speeds. Tires are Avid Ascents at 12k miles and 32 pressure.
Anyhow I thought swapping the front axles side to side might be an interesting experiment, but since the noise or vibration only occurs sometimes, I don't know what the observed condition would be.
Will I be able to tell if the axle joint is damaged if I remove the axle? No clicking or other symptoms. I'm not a "throw hardware at it" type of person.
