1995 Vibration issues

I currently have my car about 20 inches in the air ready to attack. Here's my issue. I have a groan from the drivetrain (seems like). It's not noticable until over 65 then it progressively get's worse. If i'm going 100 and slow down I get this nasty shudder. I was thinking u-joints but they seem ok. I really don't want to drop the shaft unless I HAVE to. I do have a 93 1pc aluminum waiting to go in. All the bushings look intact. My steering wheel also moves left to right for no apparent reason but everything up front looks ok. Could a wheel bearing be to cause and just droning though the car?

I've done all the normal checks and everything seems ok. I'm about ready to drop this thing off a cliff or sell it soon if I can't figure this out. And getting smoked by a 93 S10 didn't help me either.

check front camber bolts. tighten them to 105ft/lb. if you have a 1 pc aluminum shaft, why not go ahead and put it on. that way if it is u joints, problem fixed. if not it's one more thing off the list to check.

A worn out tie rod or ball joint could be the cause of the steering wheel movement. Also could be a bad tire.

Just throwing that out there.


These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.
