Check for bad U-joints at shaft ends. If the shaft is badly bent, it might be hitting something.

When accelerating hard, the rear end shake bad soon I remove my foot form the gas it stop. If I accelerate slowly no problems. Any ideas what could be the problem. Thanks


You haven't said what make and model of car it is.

On a rear wheel drive car a worn universal joint in the driveshaft (propshaft) can cause the symptoms you describe. It's sometimes referred to as a 'yoke'.

Wear causes the universal joint/propshaft to be out of line/balance and causes the vibration when the car is moving. Another symptom is a 'clunk' when the car engages gear. That clunk noise is also caused by wear.

You can check it quite easily. get underneath the car, grip the propshaft and try and turn it clockwise/anti clockwise. If there's any movement - it's worn.

Correct. Replace them all at the same time as you will need to track steering after replacing ball joints. Check rubber anti roll bushings when your at it,

Rough banging drive


if it's and SL or VR4 the carrier bearings on the propshaft( driveshave from front to rear on AWD) can get loose and cause a banging.
check for slop in the joints between the rear diff and the wheels. you really need to pull and push things around as hard as you can to find something loose enough. Also the whole rear diff is on a frame that hase bushings connecting it to the car so the busshings could have worn.
check the fluid in the rear diff for metal particles and make sure there's no slop in the diff. the propshaft going into the rear diff on the awd should have a small amount of play no more than 5mm.
