Gnarly Vibes

So on my recent move to California my jeep started to get really bad vibrations in 2nd and 3rd gear around 2000-2500 rpms It also started to make a very squeaky sound. Does this sound like a U joint issue.

Thanks for the info

Could be ujoints. How fast is 2nd 3rd gear for you cause a wheel weight might have fallen off too. Does it go away as you go faster?

The very heavy vibrations go away at higher speeds but it still vibrates. It is around 30-40 MPH at its worst.

I would start with balancing your tires. After that check the ujoints in the rear driveshaft. Also look at the shaft and see if there is any shinny spots. Possibly a driveshaft weight fell off? Also are your track bars adjustable?
