4wd Vibrations

When I engage my T/C into 4wd (low or high) I get a vibration from, it seems to be the front end, with or without the hubs locks. My guess its a driveline problem. I'm sprung over right now, my shackles are 7" centers, and my spring mounts are extended 2" also. I have a 1" drivline spacer on the T/C side of the driveline...Help

Tall shackles!

You may want to look into some axle shims to tilt your pinion angles back so that the ujoints in the driveshafts can operate at proper angles.

Re: 4wd Vibrations

Thank for the reply Glenn. I goofed on the shackles..there only 5" centers (aprox 2" over stock, with the rear mounts also extended 2"). I also forgot to mention that when driving in 2WD, with the hubs 'locked' so the shaft spins, there is NO vibes. (??) It only seems to vibe when there is output torque from the T/C. The U-joints don't show any signs of binding, they look like they could go more. When you gas it, it vibrates like hell. Anyway...Help...Thanks!!

Re: 4wd Vibrations

Did you check to see if all the bolts mounting the TCase and transmission were in place? i.e missing, loose or broken off. I have been told that when the U joint on the output shaft betweent the TCase and Transmission is about to go it makes a heck of a vibration and alot of noise.
