    I would think so. But others can give you a more definitive answer.

    Hey Jason i am sure lots of us would like to help ya but you dont really give us enough info
    there are so many things that cause a " wicked vibration

    Drive shaft con dition and angle being #1 on my list
    then tires then
    ball joints then alinment
    etc etc etc
    give us more specific info and we might be able to at least make a educated guess
    example what speed it starts at
    aalso have ya jacked up andd secured the truck and tried it with all the tires in the air yet with a buddy watching ??
    good luck

    ok lets see what you guys can do with this info. Front end aligned. all new tre's and dle's also. Ball joints good. rear drive shaft doesn't look bent and replaced both u joints. I was getting a small vibe from driveshaft then lowered transfer case and vibe went away. all four tires have been balanced and then replaced for new one for possible out of round tires don't think it is the tires had them for almost a year and the wicked vibe just started a week ago. any speed over 40 it vibes gets worse the faster you go. I checked the fluid in the case last sat. and I added 2.5 quarts to it and drove it the vibe was gone I know the case has a leak but didnt' think it was that bad. I now noticed that yesterday the vibe is back will check the fluid level again and see it that could be the problem....Jason
