Ok, so I have noticed a vibration at about 42mph. I just had my wheels balanced, and my alignment done as well. What the hell could it be? Any suggestions. Thanks in advance. :rocking:

My alignment was 50 even at a local alignment shop, took about an hour. I went to America's Tire and it was 100 to balance all 4 wheels....because they are 22's I guess that makes it more. Whatever.

damn, maybe we arent chargin enough. our alignments are 45 with state of the art laser alignment. balancing is 9 bucks per wheel with road force balancing. hmmm...?

on another note....maybe a drive shaft vibration?? is the steering wheel bumping at that speed or just feel something in the cab?

Carrier bearing for sure. If it is the extended cab in your pic then it has a 2 piece drive shaft. the carrier bearing needs to be relocated higher to straighten the drive line out. wouldn' you know it, I've go the bracket to help you out. let me know.
