Most likely universal joints. check that they are tight. if the joints themselves are bad you need to take it to a shop (unless you have the epuipment to press new ones in yourself)

Would my drive shaft going bad make my aerio shake when I take off?


Hi, well, yes, you can get shake of take off. A drive shaft, however, usually gives problems the higher your speed. Imagine a shaft, out of true.. Slow does little, but faster starts vibrating.

There are many things that can be causing what you are describing. Like universal/constant velocity joints. These manifest at low speed, especially when turning.
Also check your motor mounts and all locating hardware bushings.

Vibration when driving at all speeds but when I let off gas it stops with no load


Balance tires, check wheel bearings, if that does not work its probably idle arms or tie rod bushings that need replaced...good luck

Bad vibration in reverse


This could be anywhere in the drive-line. Process of elimination would be the best approach. From your symptoms it sounds like the bad vibration is noticed at low speeds. There are many moving parts within this system. Were there and recent repairs performed? New tires could cause a vibration, if the tread is aggressive. Damaged wheel-bearings, defective components inside the rear differential (suspect low fluid level, damaged ring and pinion or bearings), defective U-joints, or internal transmission failure. You didn't mention if the truck was 2wd or 4wd. If the vehicle is a 4X4 then you will need to inspect the transfer case, the U-joints in the output shaft, and the front wheel bearings. I'm not sure how far you want to go with the diagnostics. Please write back if you have other questions or to give an update to how the repair is going, good luck.

2005 mercury mariner vibrates a lot when driving up to 20 mph, then it's all smooth. I installed 4 new tires, did front end alignment and rear, did tire rotation and balance, now it is showing ABS


The vibration at low speeds can be due to possible fault in wheel bearings, drive shaft or even with a faulty steering system.You need to hoist up the car and check on all the individual wheels, hubs and also check for the ABS line to the wheel hubs which could have failed or there is a sensor failure on the wheel hub.

I am still having vibration problems with my 93 ford F150 4.9L


This sounds crazy but I had it happen once. Have your wheels balanced. On my truck, I had a slight bend in one of my wheels. I never felt it at low speed but as I approached highway speeds, it could feel a vibration. I had everything checked out and it ended up being a slightly bent wheel.
I hope that helps.

ARE ONE OF YOUR WHEELS BENT? OR YOUR TIRES MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM ,YOUR DRIVE SHAFT MAY NEED TO BE BALANCED

Vibration in the drive train


Sound like u-joints could be part of the problem, but there's a possibility the drive shaft could be out of balance.
