Honestly it could be many things. Driveshaft problem; tranny problem, hubs, tires... A lot of things. A

Do you feel a vibration besides the car shaking coming from somewhere in particular? Under your feet, or rear of car maybe. Check the u-joints.

Re: Gears 3.73

It may be that your driveshaft is out of phase.Disconnect it, roll it over 180° and put it back in.

Re: Gears 3.73

Make sure your harmonic balancer outer ring has not slipped or that the hub is not cracked.


Also did you check the driveshaft like I said above?

It may or may not help. Sometimes sounds make things easy to identify other times it's just really hard to tell.
