Check your tires for a bad spot or a knot. this could cause the vibration. check you switch and see if it has power. if it does maybe the a relay.could also be a lose ground wire.

Rotated & balanced tires. new driveshaft & center carrier bearing u-joints new shocks front & rear replaced rear axle bearings and seals new left rear rotor parking brake shoes new disc brake...


You will need to check things logically. Run the truck in the air and note where the vibration is at. Take the wheels OFF and put a few lug nuts to hold the rotors on, take the truck to 45mph or whatever the vibration is the worst. is it still there? if its gone, check wheels/ tires. if its still there, check rotors, axles. A drive shaft will make a rapid vibration at low speeds since it turns 3 to 4 times faster than the wheels. does it vibrate on or off the gas? Can you power through the vibration like go 60 and then coast back through? You have replaced a lot of parts that would not cause vibrations. Are you just changing parts willy nilly or is someone actually checking and verifying that these parts really bad?

Just purchased a used 1998 S10 extended cab 4 cylinder automatic had a slight vibration around 60 to 65 mph, I took it into the mechanic and they had all of the U Joints and the carrier bearing replaced...


Ok here is your fix, If you go to the dealer they sellshims that go between the trans mount and the trans to change the angle and the pitch of the driveshaft to eliminate that vibration.. good luck

Replaced u joints on 1989 Montero rear drive shaft. Now drive shaft has vibration which peaks around 65 mph. Think I reassembled wrong or bad part(s)? Used Precision not OEM Mitsubishi u joints.


When you took it apart did you "match mark" the joints so that it went back together the same? If not then your driveshaft is probably out of balance. Any driveline shop can correct this. By match marking I mean that you make a mark on each piece of the driveshaft so that when you put it back together the pieces are in the same position relative to each other. If one piece got put back 180 degrees out, it can cause the whole shaft to become unbalanced.

Which way does the driveshaft go on a 98 gmc sierra short bed 2 w


It could be just a stiff u-joint. Did you check them for ease of movement after you put them in? They should flop around quite easily. You may have to take it back off and check. If they move stiffly, give the ear a sharp rap with a hammer on the inside to move them out a bit so the joint turns free.
When you painted the driveshaft did you do any grinding or heavy sanding? Did you maybe knock off a small circular piece of metal? If so you may have changed the balance on the shaft and it will need to be taken to a shop and rebalanced. Hope this helps.

2000 Dodge Dakota vibration while driving


sound like the u-joints in the driveshaft. Lay under the truck and where the u-joints are try moving the driveshaft up and down. If it moves then the u-joints are bed. This will cause a tremendous vibration under a load and the faster it spins it will smooth out.

PROBLEMS with drive shaft thi is the 3rd time i have to rebuild the drive shaft is a 2 part drive shaft 1time rebuild the front part and 2 times the rear part any advise why is this happening


The only thing that should kill the shaft that many times is having it out of balance. Eventually a two-piece shaft will fail but it's usually after a couple hundred thousand miles. To have three of them fail seems to suggest that when they've been rebuilt, they haven't been balanced properly afterward. Find a truckstop and have their service guys rebuild it if there's no dedicated driveshaft shop near you. Truck guys will have the knowledge and equipment to properly reassemble and balance the shaft.

Drive shaft for 1988 Ford Ranger extended cab


I have a '88 Ranger XLT extra cab 4X4 w/auto tranny (2.9L V6) that had a 2-piece driveshaft on it. After adding a 4" suspension lift, there was a strong vibration whenever I took off from a dead stop. I replaced the drive shaft with a beefed up 1 piece custom built by a shop specializing in drive shafts. The truck no longer had any vibration, and it hooks up immediately on exceleration. I found the shop on Ebay advertising drive shafts. All I had to do was measure the length from the transfer case/Tranny to the rear differential. The length of the new drive shaft allowed me to adjust almost 3/4" so all I had to do was get it close. I also took close up pictures so the shop could match up the correct flange on both ends of the driveshaft. The last thing I had to do was flip the crossmember brace so it wouldn't interfere with the new drive shaft.
