    Does engine speed affect the vibration? Can you tell if it is driveline or suspension related? Does the vibration stay with you after 40 MPH? How do you feel or hear the vibration? Does it change when cornering? Sorry, no suggestions, only questions at the moment.

    Engine speed does not affect it I shut motor off and put trans in netural going down hill did'nt change. I cant tell where its coming from and somedays its worse than others. It doesnt stop starts at around 40 and keeps doing it. Cornering it still vibrates. does that help any if you need more info let me know.

    Thanks

    Is it coming from the front or the back?
    Also, check your motor and transmission mounts for play.

    Based on the answers to my questions you may reasonably rule out the engine, front suspension and wheel bearings. What do you mean by "changed tires"? Is that you have moved them from front to back and the vibration stayed the same or you put new tires on and it stayed the same? If you can, swap one side tires front to back and then the other side of course driving it after each change to see if problem stayed the same or followed the tire and rim.

    OK, running out of ideas. Time to go back to u-joints. In another thread on this site u-joints had been replaced by profesional mechanic and ruled out as the cause of his vibration only to be redone by yet another shop and that was the problem. Be sure the clips are in the caps and centered properly. Is the frequency of the vibration closer to tire speed or driveshaft speed?

    Have you lifted or lowered the truck at time of vibration?
