Vibration on take off

Vibration on take off

Postby LiftedChevy562 [OP] » Jan 16 2013, 4:32pm

I have a '96 Silverado C1500 2wd 5.0l v8, I bought the truck a few months ago and noticed tit has a slight vibration on take off, it IS lifted if that makes a difference. The vibration only happens upon take off and lasts about 2 seconds if that. I just replaced all 3 U-joints and the carrier bearing thinking and hoping that would solve the problem. No difference. :shock: So, if anyone has any idea about what it could be please let me know. I appreciate any assistance I can get.

Can you explain what lift you have on it?

On some lifted trucks (generically speaking, not specific to GM) need to have the carrier bearing shimmed to get the drive shafts into the correct angles.
