Driveshaft Vibes

Anyone ever had a problem with the third shaft(between trans and t-case) vibrating??
I have narrowed it down to this, and no modifications between trans and t-case.

Re: Driveshaft Vibes

Yup check/replace your U-joints. I had one sieze up. Vibration was there when starting and going slow.
I also think it killed my rear engine mount.... You will need to pull it to make sure they are good. Giving them
the old wiggle test don't do it.

That's what I thought, I did give it the ol wiggle test and it didn't shake but still. I'll remove it tommarow and replace em. Thanks Glenn

Re: Driveshaft Vibes

when i ran stock type u-joints they usualy froze up rarely
did they get sloppy. replace them with heavy duty grease-
able ones. they are a pain to change so lasting longer
is worth while.
