    Did you get the 33's balanced when they were installed, and are all of the weights still in place. I know you said you checked "everything" but this is an easy place to start. Are you getting any other symptoms of a bad rear end such as bearing or gear noise?

    Did you check your U-joints ??? Just change them if you don't know how old they are, they're cheap. Mine made all kinds of vibration and noise when they went.

    Ditto , mine sounded like gear noise until I changed all the rear joints as a precaution on advice from Marv , made it go away , guess I had one bad one , must be the torque I guess /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I have a CV also . No vibes . Yet after 9 months a u-joint was going , but I really do wheel and drive mine daily . A little noise is ok , these trucks aren't quiet . Double check everything just in case , make sure no wheel weights fell off . And with your CV , grease it often if it has zerks on it /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
