So i was driving my truck into work yesterday, (80miles), and noticed that it started shaking driving at highway speeds... so i back out of the throttle and could still feel the shaking. After work heading home (40 miles) the shaking was getting worse. I need some troubleshooting help guys, any suggestions on where to start? I am going to check the lug nuts when i get off tomorrow, but i have put about 1000 miles on it since the tires got pulled off. HELP :( :( :(

Have you checked the U joints?
Also check the Drive shaft steady bearing to see if you can shake it.

I am glad you asked that i cannot turn the rear driveline at all and that steady bearing is on the rear end of the front shaft right? If so that has play also that bearing has a getto spacer in it apperantly to keep the drive lines from mashing into each other cause i had the spacer out and it vibrated but not this bad.... so how do you change that bearing?


Dallas you are ol' faithfull... i figured i would hear from you with about my problem...
