Answers :

If the shocks in the back are totally blown, that could be the problem.But, you may want to check the u-joints in the rear drive shaft. (just twist the shaft back and forth while the truck is off and in gear). Look at the joints while you're doing this. If there's clanking and/ or slop of any sort, they need to be replaced.
Good luck!

I have a 1996 GMC 3500, Crew Cab, Long Bed, 454 [7.4], Automatic, 2 Wheel Drive [not dually]. It has a vibration that begins at around 30 mph and seems to fade away at around 45-50. I just put new tires on it, made sure they were well balanced, the vibration didn't go away. The vibration is still there when I put it in nuetral and coast [engine at idle] through that MPH range. If I accelerate hard through that MPH it still shows up. The vibration is not resonating through the steering wheel.

I have a vibration in the front drivetrain on my Sorento. the vibration starts at about 30-35 mph and gets loudest at about 65-70 mph.

Wear (on a bearing or a pivot) combined with a slight bad geometry on the front suspension and a slightly unbalanced wheel: at lower speeds or very high ones the vibration is too weak to be felt thru the steering. When you turn the wheel the slight t ... 2003 Kia Sorento

I have a 2006 Chevy Equinox AWD that has a vibration when the vehicle reaches 32-35 mph and lasts til 42-45 mph. Unlike others I have read about, it continues whenI am braking and casting at these speeds.

I the week since I have had the tires installed, I have noticed the vibration get a little stronger. Do you have any ideas?

2006 F150 King Ranch 4x4, transmission was shifting hard and would make a grinding noise and vibration (lockup solenoid?) at low speeds when tranny was cool. Shifted fine and no noise / vibration when fluid warmed up. Tranny eventually failed and was rebuilt but have continued having the grinding noises and vibration. It happens when driving in residential areas (25 mph) in the mornings. Seems to happen when shifting from 1 to 2 or after driving steadily at 20 - 30 mph. letting off the gas

Severe vibration My 2005 Toyota Highlander just started a severe vibration felt through the steering wheel. It sounds like helicopter rotors. We pull over, turn the wheel all the way to the right then left and it drives fine. It's happened at 60 mph and at 25 mph. Weather or time of day does not appear to be a factor. Some days it happens 3 or four times and other days not at all. We've had it into the dealer and left it for two days and they don't have a clue as, of course, it

My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a slight vibration that starts around 55 mph and inreases with your speed. Becomes more noticible from 70 - 80 mph. The vibration is not severe enough that it can be felt in the steering wheel however, you can feel it lightly in the floor under your feet and can hear a slight hum at higher speeds. It feels as if it is coming from the front center of the vehicle. I am thinking it potentially could be tires or a u-joint, any thoughts?

Hi, I have a 2001 Buick. We just replaced the front tires. Shortly after that we noticed the car vibrates at around 45 to MPH, after we get past this mph the vibration stops. It is not worse when we turn corners or change lanes. We just spent $2,000. on front end to correct the problem, we were told, but this has not helped. The mechanic double checked the front end and everything is tight. He also checked the tires, one was slightly off balance but not enough to cause problem, he still correcte
