I have a vibration that sets in around 35 kmh and disappears again around 45 kmh. Mildly noticeable again at 90 kmh +
I've eliminated old tyres ( new Cooper ATR 215/75/15 - great tyres )
Also eliminated front CV's. All were replaced after a spring lift kit
was fitted.Together with new OME shocks all round.
It was after the spring kit that the problem became evident.
Leads me to suspect propellor shaft. Anyone have experience in diagnosing this problem ? Or typical symptoms.
20 year old 4WD's are challenging !
Thanks for that input .
Do you have the part no for the pattern UJ Gary ?
Couldn't find it amongst files ?
I finally got to the cause of the vibrations. Prop shaft was balanced
and uni joints replaced. No vibes ( only good ones I get from driving
I also replaced one of the inner bushes inside the propshaft to try to eliminate the low rpm ringing I get. Reduced but not eliminated. I guess to remove this noise completely you need to remove the inner bush. A welding and major engineering effort that can wait..
Total cost for this exercise $170.
Syncro going well now and ready for some major excursions to the north west this winter..
I've posted some pics of a sand dune that was the closest I've come to being stopped in the syncro.. Took 3 attempts with 10psi finally getting me up..
