    My 90 K5 is giving me a vibration at around 50 to 60 MPH. It only seems to bibrate when my foot is on the gas. The rear U joints have been changed, and the engine in neutral at the samr RPM doesn't cause this vibration. Any Ideas on what this might be? I only have 32's on it so the angle shouldn't be doing it right? I'm thinking maybe a mount somewhere or driveshaft out of ballance? thanks for looking!!!

    where do you feel the vibration? usually if you feel the vibration strongly in the steering wheel it's related to a front end problem, are both hubs in/out, front axle u-joints good, tie rods and linkage tight. if you feel the vibration in the seat or body of the truck it's usually rear end, drive line related, u-joints or drive shaft. check your rims, any of them bent?, or maybe a tire needs balanced
