Asked by Dec 02, 2014 at 04:15 PM about the 2004 Kia Sorento EX 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

4 new tires balanced still bad vibration in rear after 35mph could it be drive shaft or rear end

1 Answer


Never looked under a Sorento, but if it does have a drive shaft, it probably needs new universal joints. Have read consumer posts, and some people had to replace the entire drive shaft. Never specified why. If you replace the universal joints and still have vibration issues, you may have a slightly bent drive shaft. If this was bought second hand or was a salvage title, most likely the drive shaft is bent.
