Light Accel Vibration
So now that I'm getting a good bit of the kinks out of my newly aquired 2000 I'm noticing a light accel/easy decel vibration. It was really bad, but after removing my front locking hubs, its much less harsh. I will reassemble them after I repair a broken stub shaft I was lucky enough to get with my new purchase.
So far I have removed the driveshaft and greased the slip joint, and that is about it other than checking axle and driveshaft ujoints.. I recently replaced the transmission with a ZF swap so the driveshaft may be out of phase, but I would think it would vibrate all the time if that were the issue.
Tomorrow I plan to check the diff fluids as I still haven't had a chance to change them, just to make sure they aren't low on fluid.
Anyone have any insight or advice on other things to look for.
