    front end vibration



    I droce to the back of a buddies place, had to use the 4x4 for 100'. Made it through. Went back to 2x. When I got out on the road, I felt a little vibration. Three weeks later this morning, it was very obvious for a mile. Then it isn't as obvious. From what I've read, it looks like the front end. Is there anything I can do. If not what will this cost. I have 99,000 miles, and rarely use the 4x4. Thanks

    Try rebalancing your tires you may have spun a weight or broke one . That would be the first thing I would do.

    Could be a U Joint in the front drive shaft. Also could be a CV joint.

    If you have driven it much since then and it did it again today I would rule out mud in the wheels but if it has been sitting since then I would check for that.

    I'd check for dried mud first. In the wheels or on the driveshaft or front axle. Then I'd get the tires rebalanced and rotated. Like mentioned, you might have lost a tire weight. Ask them to check the front balance before they rebalance the tires.
    Any questions about truck mods I have done need to be asked in the forums. Don't send me a private message about mods cause I probably won't answer that PM unless there is money involved.

    Tires are alsost new. There was little mud, but did wash it. Greased all the bearings when I changed the oil last week, but it seems to be slowly getting worse. Front end?

    It doesn't matter how new the tires are. They all have to be balanced. If you knock off a tire balance weight, it's going to ride rough.

    What really bothers me Toxarch, is that yesterday when I pulled out of the driveway it was doing it right away, 5 mph, and it was an obvious vibration. Not tranny related, I put it in neutral and coasted. still there.

    Try what they say first before looking into the front end. Check lug nut torque also. Start from cheap fixes.

    Thanks to all for your help and idea's. Here's what hapened. Two weeks ago I left the house and the vibration and noise was to the point that I was thinking to get it towed. I tried one more time. I put it in 4w high, drove straight for 300', stopped and put it back in 2wd. This time it worked! It's been over 1,000 miles, and no vibrations. Something wasn't disengaging, but it finally did after many attempts. Maybe I'l move to AZ so I don't have to use the 4wd again! Thanks guys.

    I had the same problem the first time I went 4wheelin'. Dried mud and I knocked a weight off. Try that first. $20 fix.
