    have you checked the rear pinion bearing for play? The only other thing I can think of is your pinion angle. If you have a CV shaft in there, I would either get your spring perches moved, or add shims to make you pinion straight in line with the driveshaft. Just my 2 cents. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks Rick for the input. The axle I have in my Blazer now was rebuilt right before I put it in. The only reason why I don`t think that it is in the axle is the fact that it did the same thing when I had the 1/2 ton axles in it. I have wedges in my spring packs now but do you know where I can get these shims that you are talking about. Also the axle I have in my Blazer now was in a long box chevy for a couple of months and never had a problem then. Thank you!

    you can get the shims here: AZ kickin'

    I almost definately think your vibration is from your driveline then. You might just need a bigger degree shim to straighten out your pinion to driveshaft angle a little bit. Somebody else will eventually chime in with another opinion, or to backup what I'm saying. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Gering and Scottsbluff are called the twin cities and we are in the far western part of the state called the Panhandle right on the Nebraska and Wyoming boarder

    I've got agree with Rick. Since pulling the rear shaft eliminated the problem, it is most likely the driveline angles. They angles need to be within 1-2 degrees of each other to operate smoothly. Get yourself an angle finder and check how the angles compare. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
