High speed vibration

I have a high vibe coming from the back of the car at around 70+ just wondering on where to start looking to pin point this problem

I heard on other threads of people having trouble with there drive shaft bolts loosening.but I always start with tires when it comes to vibration.check for balance and busted belts.

Re: High speed vibration

Yes, definitely check your rear u-joints bolts mine was vibrating from 40 and up and got worse the faster you went. We checked the bolts and they were only in there hand tight

it is a good idea to use loctite on the driveshaft bolts.just double check that they didnt back out.you probably dont need a whole new driveshaft just u joints if they are worn.

Yes, if you have had them out recently it is likely the case. I'd check them ASAP! Use brake cleaner to clean the bolts and holes and blue loc tite. Any trash will negate the loc tite.

Could be as simple as the balance or wear on the tires. You say you need tires? Even if you don't consider balancing them. Also the driveshaft could be out of balance. Also if the tranny has been swapped the driveshaft could be to short(spacers are available) if this is the case you'll be able to see marks on the front yoke where it was further inside the tranny at one time. I had this issue when I swapped trannys.
