no, nothing ever done to either driveshafts....only use 4WD in snow.
even replaced those inner seals behind the knuckles, had a good look at front axles..hardly used.
also, have not done the rear wheel bearings....but seems it's up front issue..i'd even call it tire hop...
DRW will smooth out quite a bit.
can jacking up the vehicle from the diff/pumpkin cause issues?
i try to not do it, but tire shops don't hesitate..makes me cringe.
I got a confession today in person in Palm Springs:
they installed the dynamic balancing beads, 6oz bag per tire, looks more like dust.
but the machine for spinning them was/is broke.
i went ahead and had them mount up the new tires/rims w/said 6oz. bag of dust.
Equal ? How Does Equal Work?
same vibrations...but seems 10 ply need the next size up 8oz. vs. 6oz.
but loving the blackout for some reason...chrome just not my style.
can envision blackout zombie apocalypse.
chrome is starting to peel off the grill and other places, clearcoat peeling.....talking myself into paintjob next year(s)...
black seems so much easier than chrome, especially on those step rails, et. al!
although, now see rusted bits inside rim, lug nuts.....they need paint...once starting on cosmetics seems it can go on forever.
as if it isn't already...going on for ever.
SO, found a recommended local guru on the way home, appointment with him next week.
he'll spin them up for me, and I'll have another go at balancing.
he said he balances them normally and then uses the bag of beads to fine tune.
wasn't surprised i'm vibrating,
at 65-70mph, he says that's normally a rear end issue!
....so maybe it is a drive shaft/rear wheel bearing issue?
if the balancing doesn't work & all rims good ......i'll go in that direction?
