Bad driveline vibration

when im going high speeds (55-65) i get some really bad vibration. I know i will have some but not that much. Im running all terrin tires so i know they wont vibrate that much. Also when im going to a slow stop i can hear a clicking noise comming from my front diff. I need as much help as i can get!

balance your tires. If the vibe is still there check your alignment. If the vibe is still there check all your tie rod ends and your track bar mounts. If it is still there throw your jeep away

Just a thought... I've gotten water and mud in my tires before from playin' in the mud. If you've been off in some trash, you might want to check it out.

You probably need to get a Slip Yoke Eliminator, and new drive shaft. Have you had Jeep Outfitters check it for you. If it is a vibe only at certain speed, it usually is drive shaft. It is a simple thing to check, and fix.

Just start with the basics. Don't go and replace the drivetrain just yet. There are some good suggestions here, but I wouldn't just start replacing expensive things without a little troubleshooting.

Yeah, just go thru it and tighten everything up on the front end. Make sure there are no loose bolts and then move on to what Clifford said. A good tire balance and an alignment can go an awfully long way to solving these vibration problems.

I looked at my rear drive shaft and had ALOt of play in it, and i ended up busting out the u joint housing. So i went and ordered a new rear drive shaft and all new u joints for the front and rear. On friday im getting my tires balanced and alligment done. Also i want to replace my steering stablizor shock, Any suggestion on what brand to get and not to get?

Monroe makes one that will work just fine for the Jeep application.

as they said, check everything first like loose bolts and the track bar but if it is still there then you might want to consider an sye and a cv driveshaft
