Help needed if possible.

Im not sure if I am suppost to be posting where I am but, I will try anyways. I have a 2000 powerstroke and I've having the hardest time trying to figure out a problem with it. It seems to Rumble when i get to certain speeds and kinda click when i go slow. Its not my tires becuase i've just put new ones the other day on it and got it aligned. It will do fine then at certain speeds it shakes and rumbles and then levels out kinda. Does any1 have any ideas? I've have my front universals checked and they said they were fine so im not sure.. Any info would be appreciated!

Check the tie rod at the pitman arm, as well as the track bar bushings. Fornt ball joints, Wheel bearings, and rear u-joints. Also if your truck is equipped with a carrier or center support bearing on the rear driveshaft. You will want to inspect that as well.

Probaly not it but it really sounds like there are rocks stuck in the tread of the tires and they are out of balence with a knobby tread.

Those would have to be some big rocks to cause a tire out of ballance.

Old phrase Mud in the tire could also be the problem. If you have driven in muddy areas the mud builds up on the inside of the rim. Which then throws off the ballance of the tire. Which causes the problem you are describing as well.

Or if you had mud built up on the inside of the rim. Then had new tires put on and they did not clean the inside of the rim. Then the rim was washed and the mud flushed out. That would cause the tire become out of ballance as well.

All the things I have listed have been or need to be replaced on my truck. Currently I am having the same problem as the OP. But I know I need a new drag link from the pitman arm to the tie-rod. But money is an issue and I usually drive locally. Plus the problem goes away at 75mph.

Well i just went outside and looked at it again and I grabbed my drive shaft and it had some play in it on the front by the transfer case. The rear of it was tight. Does that sound like that could be it?
