Quick Help- Drive shaft balancing...
Ok, I am getting a bad vibration from under my truck at around 70mph, I can feel it through the floor boards only, and so could the passenger. It also makes a squeeking sound that is faster than the tires are rotating, and so fast you can't here faster than approx. 35mph. They both stop when the truck stops. The drive shaft looks like there is a place where a weight was at one point in time... The drive shaft people want 45-48 bucks to balance. I believe this is my prob. Any other sugg. as I am taking the shaft in tomorrow at 8am if possible.

SBV1: The places I am looking at are: Austin drive train Inc. on Anderson Ln. and Hardin Drive Axle on Howard Lane. Any other places?...

Thanks all,

Have em' check your U-joints and the inner yoke of the carden (double) U-joint joint.

Yeah my dad said it can wait to get it rebalanced, and we are going to replace the cardon and the u joints too. Hopefully my problem is solved.

Drive shaft balancing
He said it CAN wait????? He's wrong. I'm about to have to rebuild my t-case after replacing all the u-joints (some twice). All of it was caused by the d-shaft being out of balance & shaking the $#!T out of the driveline - u-joints fragged, t-case bearings shot; CD's skipping... Never let anything go = if it needs to be fixed, fix it. Especially something as cheap & easy as balancing. The last time I had mine done, I drove to the shop, pulled the shaft in their parking lot, waited while it was balanced, & bolted it back in. Less than 2 hours & I was back on the road.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Why wait? It can't help, but it can sure hurt...

Re: Drive shaft balancing
that's no joke either. the last time my CV on the rear driveshaft went nuts, it shook the t-case output shaft bearing to the point that now it whines and leaks fluid past the seal, not much but it's there and it shouldn't be. of course mine was BAD, to where i had to either go full throttle or no throttle, everything in between would shake so bad it would've literally fallen apart.

and from experience, if you don't spend a dollar to fix it today you will spend 5 dollars to fix it tomorrow....
Your Toy is loaded huh? Does it have Power Engine?
