Wobble in rear tire... (feels like a bump)

05 Nissan Titan LE 5.6

So my back tire has felt like it has a lump in it, a bump every time it goes around, gets faster as it goes faster. But it actually feels smoother the faster I get, but I think that's just because it's going around so fast it's harder to tell.

It's started out not very bad at all, now it is a lot worse. I have switched it with my spare, still does the same thing. I shook the bearing it doesn't seem loose.

I thought it was the front to begin with, but I see now if I look in my rearview I can see my back tire wobbling. It's not going around straight.

I'm not very knowledgeable about cars or trucks in general, but if I know what's wrong with something I could probably fix it. Any ideas before I take it to the mechanic?

How did you bend your axle?

You can't just change it anyway. You need help from someone that has done rear end work before. I think this is way over your head.

First off you should take a trip to the place you bought your tires from and make sure all of your tires are balanced. More often than not a decent shop will rotate and balance for free for the life of the tires.

Probably but I have the cover off, I'm trying to remove the axle shaft, the pinion mat shaft (the thick bolt(pin) that is in the middle of the gears in the differential) normally has a small bolt you take out so you can remove... mine looks like just a small hole (no bolt).. I heard it's a pin to pop out. I tried putting a punch in there but it's not hitting anything.
How do I remove it so the axle shaft can come out.

Re: Wobble in rear tire... (feels like a bump)

There are no clips. You need a draw hammer to pull the axle.

Then your going to the machine shop to have the bearing and seal pressed off and on.

Okay thanks, and yeah I'm just replacing the whole axle shaft, are you sure I can't press them on myself? Other people were saying I could either with a pipe or or carefully with a punch

I really appreciate your helpBut I got it out, which was really easy Once you told me to just pull it out.

you are right it does look like my axle shaft is bent, I put my 4ft on it. I think you were the one who said that.

And I'm not the best with vehicles but I am a general contractor that has to get back on the road tomorrow. Maybe I'll f*** it up, but I hope not
Thanks again

My new one doesn't have this gear on it, how do I get it off. Or does it come off? If not do I buy a new one? I figure if it doesn't come off the old one it would have come with a new one
