Just purchased this car for my son. The rear end vibrates at speeds over 65 MPH but runs fine at lower speeds. Had tires rotated but they are more than 50% worn.

Again, if the vibration wasn't apparent before the tire rotation, look for a broken belt in the tires, bent rim or perhaps a wheel weight has gone AWOL.

Hi Walter

Was the vibration apparent before the tires were rotated?
If not, I'd suspect a broken belt or bent rim.

Hope this is helpful.

I'd have to check your suspension. You think the tires are ok? Did you try rotating the tires to see if it made any difference?

I have a 2001 ford 7.3 crew cab truck has a bad vibration at 40 mph have changed all u joints and carrier bearing had rear end checked trans fluid changed still there any ideas what might be


tires are the number one problem for highway speed vibration (assuming your engine is running ok).

Have them balanced and rotated and have them check the roundness (or lack thereof) while the tire and wheel are on the computerized wheel balancer.

i would suspect somewhere in your front end you have a compliance bushing with excessive movement. these cars front ends depend heavily on these style bushings, and as they wear you can start to see tire wear patterns, looseness in steering, and high speed vibration. make sure you have the front end inspected by a shop that is familier with these types of cars. good luck!

Vibration at 65 mph in driver side rear end only at 65 or greater


Get your tires balanced. Most likely you have had a hole patched in the tire at some point and they did not balance the tire. (Left rear)

When the truck gets up to 60-65 mph it shakes real bad. and then when i hit the brakes the rear of the truck acts like it is bouncing. just replaced the front brake rotars last week and had tires checked...


do you feel any vibration when braking at lower speeds like 30? if any vibrations happen only when braking, fix those first. I suspect there is a rear brake problem. also verify that the driveshaft and universal joints are good.

Wheel vibrations at 75+ mph


Most computer controlled tire balancing machines which are in use today only balance tires to between 65/70 miles an hour. To get them balanced to a higher speed you might want to call a few auto performance shops and see if they balance tires to a higher speed. At higher speeds it takes very little in the way of an off balanced tire to really set up a vibration so shake.
