    I have recently bought a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban which is very nice, however I have an issue with a vibration of the truck while travelling at all speeds. I can stop the vibration by accelerating but as soon as the acceleration stops the vibration comes back. The steering wheel does not vibrate it is actually the truck body itself. I have put new tires and had them balanced and the problem still exists. Please help.

    UV joints on the drive shaft.... I would start there.

    you didn't say if you had 4x4 or not either.

    And make sure the yokes on the driveshaft are not worn. The u joint bearing cups need to be very tight in the yoke.

    It is a 4 wheel Drive. I will be checking the u-joints today. The truck has 120,000 miles on it so I might just change the u-joints as a preventative measure even though they may not be bad. Thanks again and keep the good ideas coming.

    I am also going to search again to look for another post dealing with this. I did not see it when I searched before.

    Had the same problem with my truck only because the person that owned it before me is an idiot. Someone in the past put a salvage yard drive shaft on it so there were two different u joints and they vibrated so much that it ruined my pinion seal and I had no diff fluid after a while.
