Default Found my 36mph vibration!

Damn it's been a LONG 3 months chasing this thing.
I've changed bearings out twice, and last time on teh passenger side I found the grease seal spring (in addition to the existing seal/spring) on the spindle.
I had already done drivers side and the clip went on, passenger side it did not.


But I still had the vibration so tonight I tore the drivers side back off, and was dissappointed I did not find it - initially.....cleaned that spindle and kept feeling and VOILA.............


I know who did this and I will never take my truck back there, but if it was me it was a hard lesson learned....but $3000 later and everything on my truck is smooth as GLASS now....every suspension component, driveshaft, everything....just a few minor things under the hood and she's good as new.

It's always the little things that fall through the cracks, isn't it? Glad it ended up being something simple.

good job! "...and she's good as new"

hard to believe that was it. most people would've let that vibration become a shudder, if they noticed it at all. (ex-wife)
