Question about Cars & Trucks
Truck started vibrating so have swapped all tyres off the truck and put another set on, still no change. Removed both drive shafts and inspected uni joints and alignment of shafts all is good. The truck vibrates bad at about 80 to 90 kph. It is the same in different gears and also doesn't change when under load or when rolling in neutral. Any ideas on where to start next would be great. Thanks Luke
There are many things that can induce a vibration in the truck, but it seems that most of the common vibration problems are centered in two areas, balance and wheel/tire defects.

Clunking can be from c/v joints, hub bearing, lower ball joints or strut tower bearings, also from engine mounts (I know you checked but with a stickshift car it's difficult to load it properly without frying the clutch) Vibration likewise is difficult to find when it happens under load for same reason.A code check may or may not give you much to work with and O2 readouts often come from something other than an O2 sensor failure, rather from a failure upstream that sends the exhaust mixture beyond the sensors range.
It's impossible to make a diagnosis on these problems on-line because being there is important in doing this kind of diagnosis. I suggest you seek the opinion of a well trained experienced tech.who can actually be there to observe and test.
