Acceleration shudder through cab

    Hey Guys, can anyone tell me if this is normal:

    Got a 2010 silverado 5.3/ 6 speed 3.08 rearend.

    When accelerating from 20-40, heavier foot, you can feel almost a shudder through the cab, nothing bad, but noticable.

    Is this normal? Vibration and lugging felt through the cab created by the engine?

    Or is this something worse, like drive shaft u-joint going to heck? If so, how can I tell the difference? Maybe someone can drive thier truck and see the same?


    Thanks in advance

    Wouldn't say its normal. Shouldn't vibrate or shudder, at any throttle position. Unless maybe rear wheels lose traction and grip again. Sounds like something with the power train, I would assume the drive shaft. Any service lights on? If not sounds like a drive-shaft issue and would take to dealership to take a look. Should still be under power train warranty unless you have over 100,000 miles.
