Exclamation Vibration with driveshaft!!

Hey guys. Im going to make this easy to read:

- the last few days my truck has been vibrating/making noise at around 50 and 75 ish MPH.

- it also makes a clicking/"gas grill ignitor" noise when going from 0-15 miles an hour

- I took it into GOODyear to get a diagnostic.

- they said my driveshaft has play in it, they can move it 30* with their hand. and that my rear 2 U-Joints have play in them, and that my front right axle seal is leaking.

- they dont know if this is whats causing the shaking/vibrating/noise




Do any of you guys know if this stuff seems like it would be causing it?!!! I need help!!

I am planning on buying all of my parts from O'rielly and then either doing it myself or taking it to a shop.

Are U-Joints easy to install? its the 2 rear ones. what a bout an axle seal?


THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Had the same exact problems as you. My mechanic did the axle seal really fast and the ujoints in an hour or two. Didnt do it myself but solved the vibration in the truck..

U-joint Replacement


1. Chock Block the tires
2. Remove driveshaft
3. place driveshaft on tail gate
4. Remove clips holding u-joint caps in place
5. With hammer and decent size punch drive u-joint cap out.
Once one cap is punched out you can remove the u-joint.
6. Then finish punching out the u-joint cap.
7. Insert the new u-joint.
8. Place U-joint caps in the holes. Make sure you get them in as far as you can by hand.
9. Then slide the u-joint into one cap and tap it in place with hammer. Make sure you do not pinch the bearings in the other cap.
10. Once you have the u-joint completely seated install the new u-joint clips.
11. Reinstall the driveshaft. Make sure you use blue lock tite on the bolts.

If you need to do the other u-joint just follow these steps again.

Clicking is normally the warning signs of worn out U-joints

Easy to replace!
