In the past few weeks I have noticed a vibration in the truck that has gotten worse. I had the tires rotated and balanced and that helped a little bit (hardly). Then 4 days later I greased the slipjoint, replaced the carrier bearing, and all 3 u joints (from the ford dealership - spicer parts, not the cheap stuff) A little better but still there. before the wobble was bad at about 25-35 mph then would almost go away till you get up to 60 ish. This has gotten better with the ujoints and carrier bearing but still there a little. Then when you get up to 65-70 there is a very noticeable vibration vibration that seems to be coming from the rear. I know its not just in my head. Went on a 200 mile trip yesterday with a buddy and he even asked if I noticed the vibration in the truck. I said, yes I have been chasing it for some time now!!
I am thinking the next step is to take the drive shaft into get it balanced.
Can I pull the rear drive shaft(s) (long bed so there are 2) and drive the truck in 4wd to see if anything changes?
Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
