Find a shop to balance driveshafts and replace the U-Joints. You either have a bent driveshaft or a balance problem or bad U-joints.

If you have the time, the only other thing you can do is mark the driveshaft and remove the driveshaft and clock the flanges. But remember that each flange is 180 degrees difference because most U-joints have a big and small bearing cap. So to get an effective 90 degree change just make the change on 1 flange and reassembly and try it.

This is why a company which balances driveshafts is a good idea.

Please rate my info.

My Lincoln Town car vibrates right my seat when I am driving, will the Transmission do that because I replaced the ujoints

If you feel it in your seat, it usually is a rear tire balance problem. A defective driveshaft usually causes vibration in the rear view mirror. Sounds silly, but this is from 30 years of diagnosing cars.

I have a 1998 chevy 1500 it has a viberasion at about 65 the drive shaft has a little play in it were it comesout of the transfercase how can i fix it

Alittle play is normal, what i would do is remove the driveshaft and check the ujoints, a bad or frozen joint will cuase a vibration, this is a common problem i would start with that and maybe you will find a bad ujoint. good day.

2004 F250 superduty rear driveshaft is vibrating all new joints and hanger is there a special way the 2 piece shaft is supposed to go back together

When you pull the driveshaft to change Ujoints you were suppose to mark the flanges and reassemble the shaft with the same marks lined up. If you did not mark them possibly the grease or rust from the failed joint has spotted the flange. If you see the grease or rust marks are not together, you will need to "clock" the joint and reassemble so the marks line up.

If you threw the driveshaft when the Ujoints let go, then you could have bent it or knocked off a weight. You may have to take the driveshaft into a shop for rebalancing. Another trick, is to use a Radiator clamp for a weight and trial and error it.

I hope this helps you with your problem.

2005 dodge dakota driveshaft vibrations, only has 58,000 miles. Dealer says needs driveshaft assembly and is not warranty under 7 year/ 70,000 miles warranty.

You most likely need a 15 dollar ujoint. The dealer will sell you the whole unit to make a better return. Even so a driveshaft can be balanced for about $100 bucks if it were out of balance but if you did not loose a weight or bend it then it shoulds be just fine. Go to an independant shop. You will be treated better and only the parts needed will be sold to you.

When I am going down the road my truck shakes really bad. But only when I am on the gas. What could be wrong with it?

it could be a "U-joint" in the driveshaft, a bad tire on the drive axle,a harmonic balancer on the front of the engine

2005 gmc seirra vibration around 50 mph

It sounds like a bad U-joint to me. The only way to properly check u-joints is by removing the driveshaft. The joint should move freely, any binding will cause the vibration.

Rear transfer case seal do i replace it myself?

Rear output shaft? you should only have one transfer case :) Ok so put the ebrake on. Put the truck in neutral. Matchmark the yoke to the tcase. remove the bolts that hold on the ujoint. This should drop the driveshaft from the tcase. Use an axle socket to remove the nut holding on the yoke. Tap the yoke off with a soft face mallet. pull out the felt ring. Using a seal puller remove the seal. tap in a new one very carefully. reinstall in reverse order. ensure you torque the nut to the required torque aling with the ujoint bolts.
