My wife drives a Ford Windstar. It started to develop a vibration mostly in the steering wheel. When I investigated the problem I thought it was the right side CV axle. My Brother and I were changing the axle today when we found that it may be a cup bearing in the trans. Has anyone experienced this problem before and is it easy to repace cup bearings in this type of van. Any info is appreciated.

What is it you are calling a "cup bearing"
The transaxles in the windstar are known for problems but not so much for causing a shake.
The axle shaft would be down the list of possible problems as well.
What speeds is it vibrating at? on acceleration or deceleration? Breaking only? How are the tires? What year is it?
More info and I will help. Feel free to PM me...
