Hi Trevor, The vibration tells us that something is out of balance. It would be a good idea to have the whole shaft balanced and the universal joints inspected for wear. There are two ways in which a universal joint can be damaged, The most common is a roller bearings collapse and the other is a seized unit. There is another possibility and that is if there has been damage to the chassis or frame of the vehicle. Regards John

Hey Pontiac,

There are two things, firstly get your front wheel rims put on a lathe machine to check for distortion, if not, then get the wheels balanced on a digital tyre balancer.

let me know if this works

SOURCE: mazda 3 vibration prblem

I have been searching for a possible culprit on this and found the the WHEEL BEARING (inside the wheel hub assembly if I'm not mistaken) could be at fault. At low speeds you will feel/hear a sounds that seems to me coming from your tires (as if you had a flat, but you really don't) and it can cause vibration at higher speeds.

SOURCE: vibration through car

If you don't have to be moving to get the vibration then it has to be either something is not balanced properly (torque converter may be bad, front pulley, engine flywheel cracked) or you have a bad mount, causing the vibration from making the engine or trans contact the car body in a place you can't see.
Hard to pinpoint without feeling it myself. I can say for sure it's not the cam belt, unless there's debris stuck to the inside of the cam gear causing the vibration.

Replaced centre Bering and rubber coupling and still vibrating

Bad u-joint? These can seem tight but get stiff due to lack of lube or bearing failure. With driveshaft out, move each joint through range of motion to see if there is any stiffness. Other possibility is a balance weight may have come off shaft.

Will bad front ball joints cause excess wear and tear on my front tires?

I vote yes. Any worn component of the front end be it ball joints,tie rods,wheel bearings,even tire balance will adversely affect tire wear.

I was advice to change the long shaft coupling some time ago. I realised there is some vibration when doing 90km. recently I was advice to change another coupling along the long shaft, which makes it...

Things that go wrong on this propshaft:
Centre bearing. A bearing mounted in a rubber housing in the centre of the vehicle. Inspect the rubber for cracking and tearing. Replace if worn. The bearing itself rarely wears out before the rubber mount.
Universal joints - there are 3, one at the differential in the rear of the car, one at the center bearing and one at the transmission in the front of the car. When worn you will hear a distinct metal "clunk" when taking up drive on pull-away. Check by gripping the shaft either side of the joint and twisting eah side in opposite directions. There should be absolutely no play in the joint. Replace if worn.
Whenever a joint is replaced it is nescesary to have the shaft balanced again.

I would next check the condition of the engine, transmission and transfer case mounts. The mounts all have rubber inserts in them to absorb vibration and if the rubber starts to deteriorate or drycrack it can cause a vibration, especially under load.

Check the driveshaft u-joints also. They will cause a solid vibration when under acceleration load and go away when coasting. As for that carrier beariing, its best to lefdt a shop that balances driveshafts handle that so thatthey can rebalnce the shaft after the repairs are done.
