On my 96 A4 2.8l the front left(drivers side) axle shaft slides side to side about a 1/2" or so. the front right(passenger) side axle does not do this. I have also noticed that after driving a while the steering wheel will shake like the right front wheel will fall off. so i pull over and everything seems fine... then it doesnt do it for a while again. can this have somethine to do with the axle shaft or the control arms or tie rod? Is this normal?
