Bent or out of balance driveline, bent wheel.

Agreed, did you mark the orientation of the driveshaft before you removed it? You might be able to rotate the driveshaft one bolt at a time until you no longer get the vibrations.

yes I did so checked the wheels with it in the air and the pass side has a lot of play on the axel . I can move it in and out with no problem. also the yoke at the rear end and the driveshaft has a good bit of play side to side. so do I need to replace the whole rear end or what . im tight on money so the best but the cheapest way what would it be???? its just a work truck to get me to work and back realy but I use it to do other jobs also


The in and out movement is normal on the axles but the movement on the yoke is not. The cheapest way would be to get a used one from a wrecking yard, just make sure that the ratio is the same or your power and fuel mileage will change plus you will have to change the speedo to match.
