Only one end of the driveshaft and u joint shaft area was dinged up bad so we just replaced the slip yoke end with a new one and put all new u joints and greased the slip yoke. that didnt really help at all but I also still have not got the driveshaft rebalanced which I really do need to do but the shop that does it is like half an hour away and I work nights so I still ahvent got around to doing it but I really really need to. I also just had an alignment done and balanced and rotated my tires and the guy said my front 2 had some chop in it and thats def going to cause vibration but moving them to the back would help alil but until new tires its going to vcibrate atleast alil because they werent rotated before so it caused them to wear bad. Even after all that it has still only helped just a tad so the only thing left to do is get my driveshaft rebalanced and new shocks and tires. After that I have no freaking idea. but im hoping that will fix it but omg my vibrates and shakes the worst at 60 and when I get up to 70 it evens out but around 55 to 60 is def the worst. My glovebox rattles too at that speed and thats really what annoys me that worst. any ideas on how to fix that.
Definately sounds like the same issue as me. I really think that it is a combination of that tire and the driveshaft. However, for some reason I've been noticing it less in the past week or so. I definately do need shocks. When I bounce the truck by pushing down on the bumper a few times, the truck doesn't come back up and sit in position correctly. Instead, it bounces a few times and slightly side to side, then comes to a position. This means the shocks are junk. But, I don't think that has anything to do with the vibration. I'm going to throw some bilsteins on there in the next couple of weeks and have the drive shaft balanced, then I'll report back.
My glove box doesn't vibrate, but my center console does. And, I can feel it in the gas pedal. Not sure why. Have you done anything to the truck to fix it yet?
