  1. Ok well my driveshaft had been ground down on the ends to accommodate a grease fitting for aftermarket ujoints. So I thought that was the problem for sure. I replaced the drive shaft with one from the junkyard and the vibration is exactly the same. Nothing changed what else could my issue be?? Next step is front lower control arm bushings, sway bar endlinks, an alignment and tire balancing. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  2. Ok have an update replaced rear trailing arm bushings with polyurathane ones from 4x4parts and rear struts with kyb gas-a-justs. The vibration is still there but the truck rides way better. I have an appointment to have the drive shaft looked at to see if it needs to be balanced or someone bent something while changing the u-joints. I'll update later next week of the outcome.

  3. I'm pretty sure it will go off once the right pressure is in the tires. Worked for me drive 5miles if that and should go off Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  4. This is super cool looking do you have more pics? Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the info. I will look into all of those options Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  6. Nice yea I like your rig Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  7. Yea I wanted to run one across from my roof rack I could see how being to long could be an issue I also don't want it short and look silly. I define try like the double led bars more Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  8. What's the size of the bar up top on the roof Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  9. Has anyone got a led light for the roof of their r50 I'm looking to buy one and wondering if a 40" bar would fit. If you have any pictures of one installed I'd like to see what you have done. Pics for clicks Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  10. Hey just saw the posts. I havent been working on my truck much the past few weeks. The vibration is still there. I got the rugged ridge hubs and the wheels fit fine right over them. Just had to pop out the center caps. No modification I'm thinking the drive shaft may need to be rebalenced but I'm going to change my rear trailing arm bushings and maybe get some new rear shocks and an alignment. If that doesn't change the vibrations at all I'll pull the rear driveshaft and take it somewhere to get rebalanced. I'll post results once I've done that stuff. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  11. I do eventually want to lift it but I'm still getting my car ready for a show in October. (H2oi in ocean city) So the truck is being put off til after the cars off the road. Just trying to get ideas of what I should do first when the time comes Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  12. The truck looks like the struts have been replaced. It rides really good. Although i have no maintence records from anything. Idk are there strut top mounts on these that need to be replaced with the suspension maybe it wasn't done. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  13. Idk if I'm going crazy but I can't understand this. When the hubs are locked the vibration is definitely worse cause you can feel it in the front and the back and it goes away in the front when unlocked. I'm coming to the idea that it has to do with the driveshafts. Both front and rear but what are the chases both area bad. It vibrates in neutral gear while coasting at 55 so I don't think it's the tranny. Possibly bad motor mount or transmission mount Luckily I don't have to pay for them cause I can get it from work but I'd hate to do the work and have it not be the problem.

  14. It's definitely gradual starts at 40 and it's the worst at like 55 then goes away by like 70mph and it's smooth. Doesn't feel like a wheel off balence, it's coming from somewhere in the driveline. The truck is completely stock other then the locking hubs I just put on. It's weird cause it went away with the front disengaged and now seems to be coming from the back. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  15. The truck has 123,000 miles. I believe it's speed related as anything under 40mph the vibration is non existent. Any work that's going to be done to the truck will be done by me. I am mechanically inclined and I've got a nice parts truck at my work with only 96k on it so I have access to some extra stuff like drive shafts and possibly a new rear end if it's necessary. I think all the trailing arm bushings need to be replaced but they arnt too bad yet so I'd rather try to source the vibration issue first. They are on my list though of things to do.
