Tranny wobble

Would a bad trans or motor mount make my whole rig wobble. I though I threw a weight on my tire but it just doesn't seem like a tire. Anyway it happens at around 53MPH and is intermentent. The shifter goes crazy around the same speed and I started wondering if this was a bad thing and not a tire thing. By the way i have new tires only a week old so they were just Ballanced.

Re: Tranny wobble

No but I know the Trans is going to grenade any day now. I guess I should take the tires back to have them checked. I still sy it does not feel totaly like a tire but I am not rulling it out.

Re: Tranny wobble

Good ole u joint? take the bootie off the 4x4 shifter, put in 5th gear and x-fer case in neutral, you'll hear a wherrrrr sound but should hear nothing else.. that'll rule out the x-mission.. Possible crap u joint? Check the amount of play in the rear axle drive shaft.... ummmmmm...... granted a nice cheap transmission bushing kit is kinna cheap, go fer it..

got zook?

Re: Tranny wobble

Well, I actually just changed both the rear u-joints. It feels like a tire wobble but I can't figure out from witch tire. I have out of balance tires before and could tell you witch one it was with out a doubt. This seems like it id coming from the center of the vechicle. Then again it could be a tire. I will have to take it step by step. I will start with the tires and work my way in. I was hopin gnot to do this much work not too mention money.

Re: Tranny wobble

Did you get the driveshafts back together in the correct position? The components are marked and the splines need to be matched to retain designed balance. When I bought my '86, I thought my transmission was going to jump out of the floorboard. After clocking the driveshaft components properly (per the manual), the shaking disappeared.

Re: Tranny wobble

If it was a tire I don't think the stick would wobble too much.
--I'd check the U-Joints(I know there good but if there cheap one you could have thrown them)
--Drive shaft could be out of balance(hit any good rocks lately?)
--I would also check the T-case mounts Rubber and steel, The steel one's can be bent thus making a funky drive line angle
--And last but not least the Tranny mount.

Re: Tranny wobble

I guess it is time to list all the problems
1.I have a vibration in second gear. I have had this sence I have owned the zuk. When I got it was lowered and now it has a SPOA. I check the spline marks on the drivshafts and they are good.

2. Transmission, I have rebuilt it but it was very worn. This has gotten me by and is going to be replaced this month. The Trans is sloppy but shifts good, It is wobbeling a lot and is what I think is the guilty party.

3. Small clunk starting off. Thats it just a clunk. I think it is something to do with the rear springs?

4. I don't have enought money to fix all this stuff and add cool stuff like lockers and gears. This is my greatest problem.

So if any of you can help me specialy with Item 4 I will be very grateful.

Not sure about the clunk....As for the money part...I could use a little more if someone has some to spare as well!!!

Re: Tranny wobble

I have the EXACT same problem that starts at around 55mph. It started 3 weeks ago when I got my new wheels, so i'm thinking it's probably a unbalanced wheel problem. Keep us posted.
