Ok heres the deal. I got a 99 F250 and I got a vibration that feels like its under my feet on drivers side. I have recently replaced the hub, ball joints, and outer axle shaft on the passenger side as I had abroken ball joint and this stuff on the drivers side seems fine and tight. I can feel it in 4x4 or 4x2. Is there anything in the front end that turns and would cause a vibration when the truck is in 2 wheel drive and the hubs are unlooked? Does the front driveshaft turn when the hubs are unlocked? The front drive shaft does feel a little loose so I thought maybe a u joint but I wouldnt think it would make noise and vibrate in 2 wheel drive unless it turns. What else in the front end?
My other option is the rear drive shaft u joints but they feel tight. What else could I be looking for? I rotated the tires and it didnt seem to make much of a difference but im thinking of getting them rebalanced. Any other ideas to look for to get this annoying vibration fixed?
One more thing to help. When I drive and it is in gear the vibration is there when accelerating or when just cruising but if I take the truck out of gear and just let it coast the vibration doesnt seem to be there near as bad.
