Question about 1999 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

High speed Vibration comes and goes.

I have some play in the center support bearing on the drive shaft (2wd).

How do I replace the Center Support Bearing for a 1999 GMC Sierra?

I am able to drop the shaft off the rear yoke, and remove the support bearing from the truck, but how do I r/r it from the driveshaft?

    If I pull the shaft out of the Tranny, am I looking at losing fluid or is it sealed behind that?

You need to take the shaft to a machine shop to have it pressed

AFTER REPLACING U-JOINTS & HANGER BEARING ON MY 1995 VOLVO 960 I HAVE VIBRATION AT SPEED PARTICULARLY UNDER ACCELERATION. I TRIED ANOTHER SHAFT AND IS WORSE. I THINK IT MIGHT BE HANGER BEARING ALI


did you mark the two ends of the shaft at gearbox and diff
so they lined up again
with the center bearing replacement
did you mark the two halves before separating and replacing the center bearing
then make sure they lined up again

if vibration is there
you may need to go to a diff shop and have the drive shaft balanced properly

very informed drive shaft write up.. on volvos

Vibration throughout car...change engine mounts, changed centre bearing, gearbox mount, changed both front and rear couplers still have bad vibrations


check for the drive joint phasing and angle setting of the center bearing
mostly with center bearing , the drive shaft has to be split and the flange removed for the bearing replacement
the flange can be put back on in any position and that will throw out the s joint phasing
Take it to a drive line specialist shop and ash them to check the phasing and angles to eliminate the vibration
The vibration could have been from a bad joint and the new joint was not properly installed which will also vibrate
If you are not familiar with the term phasing It is when the joints are in direct line with each other when placed on a flat surface and allows the differentiating speeds of the crosses as they pass through the 90 degrees to cancel each other out and stop the vibration
the drive line specialist will know and explain it better as he will have the drive shaft to show you on

Vibration in front,feels like wheel bearing but no play in them,2001 chevy s10 2wd 4.3 pickup


First thing to check is tire balance. When you say that there is no play in the bearings, did you jack up the front end, remove the tires and put a dial indicator on the center of the axle shaft to check for run out and end play?

If it were me I would take out the drive shaft and check the play in the universal joints (I know you said they were replaced). Unlike ball joints they should exhibit good freedom of movement and flop from one position to the next as the shaft is rotated in the hand. Check that the bearing cup retaining clips are present on all sides. If there is any tightness in a bearing it is possible that either one of the cups has been pressed (hammered?) in too far or that a needle bearing was dropped from the outer race into the cup during assembly. Also check that the cup holders (arms) are not bent, sometimes if care is not taken to support the back of the 'arms' when installing the bearing cups the 'arms' will bend.
