Some weird vibrations have showed up on my jeep



seems to happen between 70-100 k but only 1/2 the time
makes no difference excel or decel or even coast

feels like its coming from mid ship but do notice some wobble in the steering wheel also

when real bad almost feels like rear tires are bouncing


any ideas :dontknow:



all i have checked so far was tire pressure ( bias 38'' swampers new ) and balance weights are intact

going to pull my rear shaft tonight and check all 3 u joints and center thingy

Might be the leaf-spring shackles working loose or wearing where the shackles meet the axle tube. Just a thought...

I had a very similar thing happen to me , but vib from front, one tire was seperating, it was scary as hell at 120
