Could be a bad u-joint. You can tell by removing the drive shaft and feel the motion of the u-joint, as it should be smooth with no notchy or sticky feel.

2002 Dodge Durango SXT 4.7L RWD shaking (serious vibration) badly between 70 to 80 mph


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.

99 jimmy vibrating when i drive it. u joint? how to tell which one


You will have to get under the vehicle, and grab the drive shaft at each u-joint. Grab the first one, and move it up, down, and side to side to look for any play. Also pay attention to missing pieces, and missing clips that hold the u-joint in.

Another thing to check is your wheel bearings. Jack the rear up, and grab each tire at 3o'Clock and 9o'clock first, and then 12o'clock and 6o'clock. Wiggle/shake it looking for play. Do the front tires the same way. You should find it.

Most common reasons for vibrations

Uneven tire wear (alignment)
Unbalanced tires
Universal joints
bearings
drivetrain

Vibration at 75 mph


Must be bad u-joint. To check it, let off the gas pedal. If it stops right away, it's the u-joint. If it takes a few seconds, it's a tire out of balance, or a bent wheel.
