Ok well I have some noise/ slash vibration coming from my front end. Usually if Im going around 40mph and am sitting in the passenger I can feel the vibration at my feet almost feels like a wobble. Today I was almost able to feel it at all speeds. When I turn Left it seems to go away, but when I turn right it almost feels worse. My instincts are telling me that its a bad inner cv joint but I am not sure. I got the car on jackstands today put it in drinve and had my brother hit the gas while I crawled underneath. I told him to do it lightly but he is a dumb*** and hit it hard. Unfornutaley i made the mistake of forgetting to turn off the TCS so my test was invalid, and I didnt feel like taking the chance of my brother doing the same thing and revving the crap out of it again. Well I guess my question is do you guys think it is my axle that is bad or could it be a wheel bearing? Also do you think my car was hurt at all by my brother reving it hard? Thanks in advance to all who reply.

Without knowing too much about your car, I'd doubt it's a CV joint as they usually make a "clicking" noise while turning at low to moderate speeds. CV joints rarely make a rotational vibration unless they're so bad they've already started to come apart (you'd know by now). Since you said the noise gets worse when you turn in one direction, and goes away when you turn in the other direction, I would lean towards saying it's a wheel bearing. One thing I might suggest is rotating your tires front to back (if they're all the same size) and see if the noise/vibration moves to the rear of the car. If the noise moves to the back of the car, you probably have a bad tire or bent wheel. If the noise stays up front, you might have a bad wheel bearing or damaged suspension part.
