Asked by Apr 06, 2014 at 12:00 AM about the 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab SB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I also was messing with the drive
shaft an noticed it was really easy to
shack it left to right an looke toward
the front of the truck an everything all
the way to the motor was moving left
to right so I ordered a new
transmission mount so I hope that
fixes it.. But if not I guess I'm gonna
install the other 4 bearings in the rear
end .. But any ideas??

Did you have the driveshaft removed and reinstalled before the vibration? Reason I ask is that , the driveshaft is balanced in the position it is installed. You should always mark the orientation before removing.


No drove fine on sun woke up went to work mon morn it started doing the vibration an then soon as you let off the gas at 55 it had a noise like the pinion gear was bouncing of the ring gear so I automatically was like dang pinion is loose cause I had a 2005 dodge 1500 that I had that happen on.. But the nut wasn't loose so I took it off an replaced it anyways an yes put the driveshaft back in same spot but the noise (I guess ill call it rattling noise went away but still have the vibration but it is exactly 50-55 mph nuthin more or less..
