Your axle or bearing could be damaged. The driveshaft could also be out of balance.

I got a GMC Sierra with a 350 engine and a 7r400 transmission. My issue is when I turn left and right or go up hills my transmission has issues shifting. Transmission good its been removed and checked out....


okay the transmission is probably fine ,,,but if you are having these problems like this have your trans axles checked out ..anytime you put the vehicle in a bind that creates hard shifting you are heading for expensive repairs ..Have the ball joints checked as well to see if all of this smooths the transmission out ..It could be something simple ..also remember that a faulty steering can cause this

1999 silverado rear end shakes at all speeds. put brand new tires n balanced


You should have an alignment on all 4 wheels. Check that the rear axle has not shifted forward or backward on one side. If you have Rear Disc Brakes, have the Hub & Rotor checked for alignment. Does this shaking happen all of the time or just when turning? Does it only happen when you apply the brakes? A Rotor and Hub that is out of alignment will cause shaking. Also check that the Caliper Slide Bolts are lubricated, otherwise the caliper will not operate correctly and the inside of the rotor will wear out faster. This can cause shaking also.

2003 chevy s10 2wd- shop had replaced leaf springs because one broke due to an accident. frame ok alignment not much needed.. after driving a week rear end got loud on acceleration. now rear end...


These are most likely part of the accident damage. While you are fixing this double check to make sure that the axle on the side that was hit isn't bent as well. Also check the axle tubes from the differential to make sure they aren't bent either. An accident that had enough force to break a spring and bend a driveshaft is strong enough to bend the other parts as well. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. Check the axle and tubes carefully and be sure. Hope this helps.

2003 Pathfinder SE is bouncing


> Does this vehicle have shock absorbers or leaf springs?
It would be either leaf or coil springs; shock absorbers serve to prevent that continued bouncing and these may be simply shot.
The crude way of checking shocks still works somewhat:
- Position yourself on each corner of the vehicle and through repeated pushing down and letting the corner come back up, get some momentum and then let go at the bottom of the cycle.
If the shocks (which may be located within coil springs- McPherson struts) are still effective, the vehicle should rise slightly once and then settle. If they are blown, there will be some continued 'overshoot.'
The leaked fluid can be checked for odor; brake fluid is pretty distinctive while lubricants will smell somewhat like oil or grease. This could be from a shock but most are now gas filled rather than with a type of hydraulic fluid.

2001 gmc sierra 1500 2 wheel drive shakes when taking off from stop shakins stops at about 15 mph was told drive shaft angles to side then back to diff. is this normal mechanic said he was not sure if this...


on a two wheel drive the shaft should only angle down if this a used truck I would say the rear
axel was hit on the side that the drive shaft angels away from and the alignment should be checked out.

Bouncing rearend


Some leaf springs, when removed causes a bounce in the rear end when you forget to put them all back. You should try adding some leaf springs recommended from the manufractuer, or just look for the same parts from another model just the same as your vehicle. (tip from experience: match the leafs, and where they go.) for example: the small one will go with the other small one. I used the 2nd largest leafs and added them to my rear end, so instead of just one leaf stock there was two. if this solves your problem let me know.
