Vibrations

Yesterday I was driving my father's truck (77' 3/4t 454/400/14bFF) and between 60 and 70 mph I noticed some decent vibrations. What would this be, the truck is stock?

<font color=green>It could be many many things, from an unbalanced wheel to a bad u-joint. Or, it could be alot of other stuff...

Re: Vibrations

right off the bat i suspect the U-joint....and they're cheap so why not check that first...might get lucky. after that its a matter of elimination. obviously its drivetrain as its vibrating.....which is ccaused by something spinning fast and nopt in balance.
second I'd check for a tire that has tossed a wheel weight. third...perhaps a bent/illbalanced drive shaft. after that you're looking at a big bill so just let it vibrate[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Vibrations

I've been thinking myself that its time to put some new u-joints in. Who makes a good u-joint anyhow?

Re: Vibrations

i usually get spicers...not for any huge difference in competition, thats just what the parts place i go to sells, so thats what i get. keep em greased and go easy on the axlewrap and they last a while;

Re: Vibrations

The u-joint looked ok but then again I just took a quick glance.
