    Axles are the least of your concerns for vibrations and knocking. Its your shocks absorbers and bushings that needs to be checked. Who knows it might even be your control arms.

    Get back to me once you get the part that neds to be changed, I MIGHT have a manual lying here somewhere.

    I had this issue - in my case, it was the driver shaft. It caused a strong knock that could be felt in front.
