Check the front drive shaft joints, 2 on each shaft , the rubber boots often brake , grease leaks out , dirt finds its way in , if worn replace them.

I have a bad vibration that appears to be coming from the rearend. Started out only at certain speeds now it's all the time. Stops when you let off the gas. Shakes the entire vehicle.


A couple of things to check. It may be a wheel bearing, shock, cv joint, or a very common cause is that one or both of your back tires are worn irregularly. This causes the car to shimmy and get progressively worse as you have explained. It usually happens on the front end of the car, but can occur in the back.

spin the drive shaft back an forth, if it has play then its your universal joints, also lift drive shaft up and down near the the bearing and see if there's play there as well.

My 97 4wd explorer shakes and makes a clunking noise when I get above 50 mph I've replaced both front wheel bearings and did fine for about a month then started shaking and grabing on the driver side only....


It is usually the CV joints in the drive shaft(s) that are worn, and make this noise.
I would look at your CV joint boots, are they dirty and full of grease on the outside. Does the inner wheel well have grease slung onto it ?
Replacing the drive shaft is a difficult repair. I would have a reliable auto repair center give an estimate.
Please let me know what you find.
