    still have vibration after replaceing the rims

  • acetaxi Aug 04, 2008

    Took truck back to where i had front end alignment and new rims and tires balance they test drove it and rebalance the tires. i guess they also felt it to rebalance the tires. They don't know what it is. My snap-on guy told me drive shaft. so i guess i will try that next, unless anyone out there can help me out.

    Sorry guys, Its a 1993 Toyota. Its a rear wheel drive. Its a 5 speed. Drive shaft was checked out, they said there was nothing wrong with it. Still trying to figure it out, if anyone has any suggestions

    I have the same problem and it was doing this when I bought it, the car dealership managed to fix it but I dont know how they did it, then I slid into and bumped the guardrail (very gently) on christmas day and now its doing it again.

If you could rack the truck and run the rear wheel at the speed untill you feel rhe vibration you might be able to isolate it, I agree, it may be a drive shaft issue, have you checked the u joints for wear, all of them,?

My 94 4wd pickup was doing the same thing. It ended up being the joints in the front driveshaft. They can be pretty pricey, so have him remove the shaft and take it to some junkyards, they'll probably have one lying around.

Don't know if you've received the recall notice from Toyota or not, but Toyota sent out safety recall notices on the 4wd steering relay rod for pickups 89-95. That may be it. And Toyota will replace it at their expense, or if you've already replaced it, IF you still have the receipt for it, take it with you to the dealer when you go and they'll reimburse you for it.

If you think its the drive shaft, this should be visible when you rotate shaft by hand (Gearbox and transfer case In neutral) with hubs off.

Truck starts to shake at 40 mph gets to 45 mph then the shaking stops after 45 mph


Many possibilities. I would start with wheels, and take it to a well equipped tire dealer. Have them check that the wheels and rims are clean, properly torqued. Spin the wheels up to speed and check for dynamic wheel balance. Check for broken radial belts. Check for recalls on your tires. Check for driveshaft and universal joint damage/ balance.

Well the only thing you didn't change were ball joints and if it's four heel drive , the universal joints in the shafts. Since it is a balance problem I would suspect the drive shafts. Although these are uncommon to have a vibration at a certain speed, I wouldn't rule them out. Also the u joints can get stiff, this would cause your problem faster. Check them for a lot of rust at the caps. And just a note alot of front end guys miss the shafts on alignments.

Vibration in front end axles look good tried new tires still there


If you jack up 1 wheel off the ground and put the car in gear , you can watch the tire spin. You might see a bent rim. The shop that mounted the tires should have seen it and warned you though.

Hello, I see you may a lot of changes and replaced a lot of parts. We leased an Explorer the same Year as yours. In our case there was a slight noise as well as vibration. The problem was the Front Hub bearings, They were bad at 18000 miles.

There are a few things I want to suggest. The spinning of the wheels on the lift will not load the bearings. A Dyno table can get everything turning with a load on it. As your vehicle is a 4x4, most Dyno's were 2 wheelers. You would have to call to find one for a 4x4.

Next, if the new Hubs do not help, have a look at the rotors. They are also balanced. You can spin balance the Wheel and rotor as a unit with a floor motor. It's not the best way to Balance because tire rotation or even shifting the Wheel on the lugs will UNbalance it. But this method CAN pinpoint a problem if a Balanced tire does not spin true when bolted to the vehicle. You will know the Rotor is off-balance and which axle is causing the problem.

Would be interested to see a Post of what you found.

Vibration at 70mph after new tires and alignment and much trouble shooting


it could be as easy as checking to see if you have a dented rim.....

or as expensive as changing the "constant velocity joints" but only if it is a front wheel driven car.....

how are your shocks?

have they repacked the rear bearings..."but only if not rear wheel driven car"

Vibration from 45-60 mph..new michlin tires ,aligned and balanced


have the steering rack checked for excess play, also have all the front end bushing checked, this is a common cause of this type of problem, it is the front end that is doing it, finding the worn part(s) is the job that needs to be done to correct this.
