Question about 1992 GMC Sierra

1995 gmc 2500 4x4 vibration

Ok, so today I started getting some vibration while driving, up to 40 it seems fine, but after that im getting vibration, the steering wheel isnt shaking. no bubbles in the tires. it feels like it might be in the rear, but not certain. could this be a wheel balance issue, tire rod, idler arm? any input would be appreciated.

    If it was a steering arm dampner wouldnt I get wobble in the steering wheel? wheel bearings seem fine.

  • Bill Boyd Jul 31, 2013

    The wheels spin in a verticle plain and when there is a change of direction the force of the spinning disc tries to resist that change . Because you change direction every minute you are on the road either by steering or the uneven road surface the damper slows down the erratic changes so that they are not transmitted to the steering wheel. To understand the principle. place something that you can spin on a axle(toy top) and spin it then change the angle of the axle and see how the spinning object resists the changed direction. consider what you felt and then imasgine the force involved in a wheel spinning at say 500 rpm multiply that x 2 for 2 wheels going their own way and you will see why that damper has to be good.

Check the steering arm damper shocky as it may be failing and not providing the proper dampening effect to the steering. Check the wheel bearing adjustment and condition.

SOURCE: front end and steering wheel shakes

Most common problem would be tires are out a balance. Or, the tires are out of round ( meaning the tires have a hop to it; not completely round ).

hmm. does it seem like it's coming from any certain spot?
could be a tire wobble..
or check your U-joints on your rear drive shaft.
see if they need to be replaced. that's what I'm guessing it will be.

If the problem occurs at a specific speed range it is usually a tire or rim problem. More often than not, tire balance, but can be alignment. Start with the simple and inexpensive first.

Vibration from the back change u joint still the same vibration between 40/60 km 1999 sierra 2wheel drive front end ok


Have your tires checked for any unusual wear or pitting and make sure that they are balanced right. If they are even just a little bit out of balance it can cause your back end to vibrate. Hope this helps. Good luck!
