I replace the hanging bearing on my s10 1993 and the joints still vibbrate why

check for "U" joint phasing
you have to split the drive shafts to get to that bearing and if you haven't put the splines back properly , it will vibrate as the phasing will be out
that includes the flange on the splines next to the bearing

ES Lancer - vibration, dull grinding noise when turning right, even at low speeds. Intensifies as I approach 30+mph. Replaced CV Axle, Tie Rod End, Bearing, and Hub. No dice.

Turning right and having a loader noise, means the left/drivers side is bad. Turn right, more pressure on the left side. and vice versa.

How do you remove the front rearend crown and pinion on 1997 gmc serria 4x4 1500 pick-up

That indicates a bad pinion bearing. On this rear end it is usually necessary to replace the ring and pinion gears as well as the bearings becasue when the pinion bearing goes bad it will spin on the pinion gear itself causing it to wear thus just replacing the bearing will not work because it will fit loose on the pinion gear and it needs to be pressed on tight. ---------- First the c-clips are to be removed from the pinion gears.-------- Click this link below and follow the detailed procedure:---- -------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

How much will it cost to repair a GMC 2003 Sierra 1500 V6 Differential Seal that leaks? I live in Michigan

It is very easy to replace either the pinion seal or the cover gasket. To replace the pinion seal, remove the driveshaft and let it hang ( it shouldn't come out of the tranny). Remove the pinion nut and the pinion yolk ( may have to tap it with a hammer). With a screwdriver and hammer remove the seal,,then wipe the seal area clean. Take new seal and tap in with hammer and replace yolk and drive shaft.

2003 Yukon xl feels like 4 wheel drive on driver side stays in all the time. Feels like it is riding ruff on driver side.

Your description leaves open a lot of possibilities, but one common issue with these vehicles are wheel bearings. If you have access to a jack, you can lift one side of the front of the vehicle so that the tire is hanging in the air. Grab the top and the bottom of the tire and try to push and pull the tire toward you and away from you. There should be essentially no play or movement. if there is, your bearings need replacing.
