    I would look for a bad u-joint on the rear driveshaft. Get it checked, and let me know it this helps. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

You may need to have tyres balanced and wheel alignment done.

Toyota 4 runner, 1990. vibration


very possible
front drive shaft is the most likely as it does little work and the grease tends to dry out promoting wear
check all slip joints on both drive shafts as well as "u" joints
check engine mounts and front diff mounts as if they are broken , that will allow misalignment of the shaft angles

Could be u-joints. Play goes away under Torque (accelerating) and returns when parts shift (unload) from Torque like coasting or braking.

I have a 1997 landcruiser,when driveing at 40 to 50mph a vibration appers when accelerating up to 70mph it gets worse take foot of accelerater goin down hill thers is no noise or vibration


Check your universal joints in the drive shaft. When you remove your foot fromt the accelerator you are no longer applying power to the rear wheels and in turn there is no load on the drive shaft. When you accelerate below 40mph, there isn't enough centrifugal force to cause the driveshaft to wobble, but once you go above 40mph, it begins to show slop.

Another thing to check is your wheel bearings.

I have 2003 Dodge Durango and when I accelerate above 40mph there is a vibration. When I remove foot from gas the vibration stops. Can coast at speeds with no vibration.


How many miles on your Durango? This could be a failing U joint on either driveshaft. Could also be a ties out of balance or going bad.

Since the vibration goes away when coasting, I am voting for a driveline issue.

Vibration after 50 mph, and when accelerateing after 50 mph, worse when you accelerate, very little when coasting. but only after 50 mph


Welcome to fixya the best thing to do is check the rims for imperfections and slight bents that causes the vibrations at that speed go to www.collisionrepairadvice.com to get a wheel repair company to look at.

Tire Vibration


I have the same issue - but notice its worse when you accelerate hard in 5th. I have changed all the ball joints, bearings and track rod ends but its still there. From trawling the various forums I'm starting to think I need to change the suspension arms and top strut bushes. 100K
