Question about Ford F-150

1 Answer

I am still having vibration problems?

I am still having vibration problems with my 93 Ford F-150 4.9L and i have had new bearings put into the rear end. I have had new U joints press into the drive shaft and had the drive shaft checked out it self and that came out all good. I have had a new brass bushing put into the tail end of the Transmission and it still did not fix the problem but the Transmission guy to me told me to go and get some lube guard and put it into the Transmission. He told me to drive it for 50 miles and that should stop the vibration problem and he told me to get the lube guard at Midway Auto Parts in Greer. So would that really stop the vibration problem cause it is starting to look like know body can not find the vibration problem and all they are doing is trying to guess. I really need some real help with this problem or i am going to sale my truck and buy a Chevy.

    I was told the vibration problem is in the drive train so would this help by put some lube guard in the Transmission?

    I do not know actually what is vibrating. But i was told it is coming from the drive train so would this help by putting some lube guard in the Transmission. Cause my Transmission guy told me to put that in it so will that help or not?

    Well i do not mean U joints or cv joints what i mean is the drive shaft joints are new cause i have had them put new. But like i have been saying my Transmission guy told me that it is coming from the drive train. He told me to put some lube guard in the Transmission and that may stop the vibration problem. So could that help?

93 jeep yj 2.5 lift new u joints 31 s drive line vibration is this normal for such a small lift ?

Usually at some point in time

You have to check & correct drive shaft angles,
the best you can, with shims on the rear spring perches
& possibly lower the trans tail housing mount

You have to check the drive shaft for being straight
& MUST have it balanced

What about Shocks?

Did you add ones with the extra travel as the lift?

Did you try different tire pressures?

Have you narrowed down the exact speed & road
conditions it starts to vibrate?

Are the rear wheel bearings on their way out?

How about installing new motor & trans mounts?

Change all diff fluids & go to full-syn

Install or rotate the tires to different spots

Keep notes & make one change at a time

Is the Suspension Bound up any where & not free
to rotate or move since lifted?

I am still having vibration problems with my 93 ford F150 4.9L

This sounds crazy but I had it happen once. Have your wheels balanced. On my truck, I had a slight bend in one of my wheels. I never felt it at low speed but as I approached highway speeds, it could feel a vibration. I had everything checked out and it ended up being a slightly bent wheel.
I hope that helps.

Rotated & balanced tires. new driveshaft & center carrier bearing u-joints new shocks front & rear replaced rear axle bearings and seals new left rear rotor parking brake shoes new disc brake...

You will need to check things logically. Run the truck in the air and note where the vibration is at. Take the wheels OFF and put a few lug nuts to hold the rotors on, take the truck to 45mph or whatever the vibration is the worst. is it still there? if its gone, check wheels/ tires. if its still there, check rotors, axles. A drive shaft will make a rapid vibration at low speeds since it turns 3 to 4 times faster than the wheels. does it vibrate on or off the gas? Can you power through the vibration like go 60 and then coast back through? You have replaced a lot of parts that would not cause vibrations. Are you just changing parts willy nilly or is someone actually checking and verifying that these parts really bad?

Vibration during acclerating .ford f150 91

Believe it or not check your engine and transmission mounts. They are reinforced rubber and they may be giving, causing misalignment, creating vibration.

Vibration at 70mph after new tires and alignment and much trouble shooting

it could be as easy as checking to see if you have a dented rim.....

or as expensive as changing the "constant velocity joints" but only if it is a front wheel driven car.....

how are your shocks?

have they repacked the rear bearings..."but only if not rear wheel driven car"

Ford super duty vibration/shake

The carrier bearing should not move at all. It is mounted in rubber to give a little. But, it should not move freely. If this is the case then something has gone bad. The carrier bearing would cause this vibration as it spins if it is loose.

Noise and vibration above 50 mph

Sounds like front differential or front drive axle issues. Check the front differential gear oil then take er' to the dealership before you end up spending a bunch of $. Most people change their oil frequently in the engine but forget about flushing the transmission fluid and changing oil in the front and rear differentials. I have three Ford 4X4s. Two which really get used hard. The 93 has 311K miles and still runs excellent. Trans and differentials get a fluid change every 25K miles and moble one synthetic engine oil changes every 5k miles.

2002 ford Ranger 3.0 v6 (auto) rear end noise when accelerating on curves.

Remove the drums and check your rear brakes. If okay, you may try testing a couple different tires in the rear. Belts separating and flat spots show worse at higher speeds.
It could be bearings if truck is used alot while loaded. Remember 1/4 ton is only 500lbs. High miles, hard driving, or if it was wrecked in rear could all cause these smptoms.
