Question about 1999 GMC Suburban

Loud roar or vibration

On my 99 4WD GMC Suburban, I have a loud roar/vibration at 55 to 65 MPH. The vibration is constant and will not fade or change pitch when decelling or cornering or any other attempt to change the frequency. What is the most likely cause?

    I have the same problem, I had the transfer case gone thru the rear end bearings and gears replace, the front bearings replaced, new tires, new ujoints, new rear drive shaft, had both drive shafts balanced, and the noise is still there.

    I have this same vibration. 54mph to 67mph. So far we've tried: new wheels, new tures, new u-joints, new pitman arms, new streering box, new bearings and new re-built rear end. Same problem exists. Has anyone, ever fixed this problem?

Start by inspecting your tires. Look for uneven tread ware, tire separation (a bubble) on the inside or outside. Then change the fluid in your front and rear differential. This will tell you if you have a gear problem. Change the fluid in your transfer case also for indication of a gear problem.

This may sound radical, but while driving on an open road with no traffic, put the car in neutral and turn the motor off. If the sound goes away, the problem is in the motor or trans. If the problem persists, its probably a wheel bearing or something stuck in your wheel. Car will restart in neutral, and just drop it back into drive.

I just bought a 1988 S-10 2.8 ltr 2WD. Amazingly it runs really well. The engine runs really smooth. The tranny shifts like new. But I need help with two things. 1) It vibrates at 30 MPH regardless if...


Not sure what torc sounds like, sorry do not want to be rude. but i think your proublem is one of two things, check to see that your wheels are balanced and all the lugs are tight, if not that then check the drive shaft, u-joints and or center bearing. drive shafts have weights on them and can become unbalanced especially after u-joints have been changed. (like wheels after you put new tires on them)

It sounds like a bad U-joint to me. The only way to properly check u-joints is by removing the driveshaft. The joint should move freely, any binding will cause the vibration.

Vibration in the steering wheel on a 4wd truck


I just had the same issue with a 1999 2500HD and the vibration got worse above 50 mph. Problem was resolved with a new driveshaft. Old one (aluminum) was badly out of true and the problem didn't really occur until I had the U joints changed - then bent driveshaft vibration was noticeable. New driveshaft resolved issue.

what year is your explorer, if it is a newer one say within the last 10 years it could be from either the rear end or it could be from a hub bearing in the front end. these have problems with hub bearings going out.

This may be caused by bad motor mounts. Lift your hood and then start the engine. Put it in reverse and hold the brake. Push on the gas peddle and watch the engine. If it trys to roll over they may be bad. Be careful.
