Vibration in 2006 3500

Hope i get some help on my truck from here. I got a vibration in my truck when i get to about 50mph and one at 70 mph. Had the tires blanaced it help the 50 mph but not the 70 mph. Does any one got any ideas what this might be? It also only has 53000 miles on it so its not even broke in yet. any help would be greatly appriated.

You might check the front end parts. ie: tie rod ends, drag link, ball joints, etc. Also search this site for "death wobble".

Something else that you can check, but you need someone rolling the truck forward for you while doing. Check ALL of the tires for high spots going the same direction the tread is going. You might have a tire seperating. Just replaced mine for the same type deal and 40-k miles.

Just a farm truck, with some extras!

Yeap, from what I have seen it has been more of a problem on 4x4 and lifted trucks. Mine is a 2wd cab n chassis and so far no problems, but that part is all stock.

I had a vibration at 50mph and the dealer did the torque converter/flywheel change and it still had the vibration. They checked the u-joints front and rear first and they looked ok. After all that work they went back to the rear u-joint and replaced them and that was the end of my vibration. I think the u-joints would have been a easy fix but they warrantied this and the work was for free.

I have 53K on mine, and just had the same issue vibation and squeaking at low mph. Changed the rear driveshaft U-Joints and it was solved. If you do this yourself, be ready to deal with the injected nylon around the cups! I used a torch to melt mine.

so you did it your self and you had to melt it off? did you have to put another nylon on?

Your new U-Joints will come with the proper retaining clips. I recommend getting a high quality U-joint with grease fittings. When you melt out the nylon be careful not to over heat the drive shaft or yoke, as they will warp on you.
