Question about 2002 GMC Sierra 1500

1 Answer

Vibration at 50km/30mi/hr

I had all three u-joints replaced and now I have noticed a vibration at 50 km/hr. Had tires rotated and balanced and the vibration is still there. Transmission Shop wants to take our drive shaft and check for balancing and make sure its straight at my expense. They are guessing that this may be the problem. Has anyone encountered anything like this??? Please help

It could be the shop has bend the shaft or put a big dent in it or knocked the balance tabs off,causing imbalance. should be the shops expense.

My 2003 GMC Jimmy has excessive vibration when accelerating hard or at speeds of over 80 km/hr - 50 MPH. Could this be a u-joint issue?


If the vibration is in the steering wheel, and you are in 2wd then chances are it is not you're u-joints. I would get other car on a Lift, check ball joints and steering linkage for play. You may jut need to balance your tires

Vibration on 2004 Cadillac Deville


If a hub bearing was bad, it almost always would make noise, more so when changing lanes at higher speed. Outer CV joints make a loud low pitched rattle when turning (corners). Inner CV joints raise hell at high speed- bad shake! Sway links affect cornering and clunk when hitting rough patches of road surface.
Is the vibration worse at 65 than at 50? If so, you are dealing with a wheel balance situation. Find an old time front end shop that will check the balance on the vehicle. You will have to turn off the traction control to do this or use an on-the-car wheel balancer.
If you feel it at some low speeds at it comes back at other higher speeds, then you are dealing with tire roundness. Possible more than 1. More common than we would like.

There is a wobble in the steering wheel between 80 and 90 km/h what could it be?


A steering vibration at high speeds is usually a result of front tire imbalance. A loose or worn front suspension or steering component can sometimes cause a vibration as well. You should check over all the joints (ie: tie rods, ball joints, track bar etc) and if that checks out have the front tires balanced.

Body vibrations from 60Km/hr to 120 Km/Hr


Are the tires balanced? Did they use stick on weights, if so? If this holds true, see if there is a mark on the wheel, where a weight has flown off.

How about the front end alignment, and condition of the tires. Sometimes a belt slips in the tire. This is hard to see, but can be found by sliding your hand around the tire, and you will feel a bulge to one side. (Use caution, as there's no telling what may be stuck in your tire/s, and you can damage your hand or fingers. I realize how that sounds. One has to use finesse, when checking one's tires, with this method)

A very common problem is faulty tires or incorrect wheel balance of the front tires. Check for a bulge or a wear on the tires. If all is in fine find a mechanic to check your wheel bearings. Check for a broken strut assembly or shock absorber. Check for tire rod bushings and the balance rod. Check complete front suspension.
