    Default Shaky at about 35 mph

    At times my truck will drive perfectly fine but at other times when I'm staying at around 35mph it will shake like crazy and won't go away until I slow down or speed up. Anyone know what this could be?

    does it start shaking again around 70mph. could be tire balance. after that possible driveline issue.

    I'd say tire balance too. I've had the same problem with cars before and it always was tire balancing.

    I had that problem on my 2000 thought it was the tires but it turned out to be my LF bearing was falling out. It was odd because it only happened sometimes.

    My Sub had some severe vibration between 40-55. Changed u-joints. Still vibrated. I knew the tires were balanced, so I finally climbed back underneath and noticed the rear yoke was loose. Got a big socket (either 1-1/16 or 1-1/8"), some loctite and tightened it back down. Took care of my issue...

    Rear yoke out of the transfercase?

    No, on the rear end. Out of the transfer case is a slip yoke.

    Other thing that sometimes happens is the lockup torque converter doesn't disengage. This won't happen if you are speeding up to 35, it pretty much only happens if you're slowing down from cruising speed (55 or so) to the 30's range. you can tell though, it's more of an engine chug shake than just a chassis vibration.

    I've had tires cause this problem before. The belts break in the tire causing a severe wobble, also called "death wobble". Only does it at a certain speed, I don't know why. To check if this is the problem, rotate the rear tires to the front and the front tires to the rear. If it goes away, then you know its the tires.
