Killer Vibration

Uggg .. I have finally had it! I have taken my truck to a bunch of places, and none of them seem to be able to help.

When I am cruising between 40 and 50 klicks (that's 25mph) my truck shakes like it wants to fall apart! I have had the tires rebalanced (several times), the driveshaft rebalanced (it wasn't out) the tranny checked (its still there) .. what else could it be? I am running 225/75 tires and want to run 235/75 tires, but if the vibration is bad now, what would it be like with the new rubber, less or more?

Laters!

Re: Killer Vibration

Is this in 4x or 2x? How about speeds other than 25mph? Around 55? Auto or manual tranny? I don't think there's any lift on your truck, am I right? Maybe it's a U joint or 2? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Killer Vibration

sound like you have a seperated belt in a tire.
lift one wheel at a time, with a verry thin tight fitting
pair of glove(actualy lets you feal more)but you don't
have to use gloves, feel all over the tire while you turn it
what you are looking for can range from a large blister
(softball size) to somthing you can't see-only feel.
Also look for a shift in the side wall or tread,
and yes a seperated tire can be balanced. Unless your tire
guy is looking for it he might not find it.
later

Hmm .. seperated belt or blown out side wall. Could be. I can remember a time when I did some sidewalk jumping, and its been there ever since. BFG HERE I COME!!!
