Re: Excursion Vibration Problem!

some of the problem you might be hearing about have to do with two things angles (lifted rigs) and also flange runnout problems ford has always had - there are ways to fix these problems - a c/v shaft and also sometimes clocking the driveline around on the flanges can help -

Re: Excursion Vibration Problem!

I just had mine serviced and complained about a vibration around 60 mph. It feels like a U-Joint is about to give. The mechanic said he drove my rig and felt a slight vibration. They checked all of the Ford recommended fixes but everything looked OK. The service manager recommeded that I get rid of the Fireblowns to see if the problem goes away. I'm looking hard at the Yokohama 285's. I've heard good things about the tires. Also, my vibration is more pronounced when I'm towing my boat - 600 lbs. of tongue weight. The vibration is pretty bad at 45 mph but goes away after the X is warmed up. Good luck... [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: Excursion Vibration Problem!

a problem that changes hot and cold is most likely not driveline related- but the issue on acceleration makes me wonder if your rear diff angle might be a bit low- (don't think the ford dealer will fix or check all issue's there driving blid on most issue's ) Good luck -Jess

Re: Excursion Vibration Problem!

Drivelineman, I agee with you on the hot/cold issue. New tires will probably solve that problem. However, I'm somewhat at a loss as to what to do about the driveline vibration. I've owned cars before that had the same symptom so I'm sure the driveline or u-joints are the problem. My X is stock except for new Bilstien shocks. If I hadn't paid so much for the X I could swallow taking it to a driveline shop and having it analyzed. The cheaper route is to get Ford to replace the driveline. I'll let you know when I find that snowball in Hell.

Thanks

Re: Excursion Vibration Problem!

I have a 77 Trans Am, slight vibration since new. Replaced the Goodyears (told it was radial run out), had the drive shaft balance twice. Took to buddies in auto busness they couln't find anything, I owned and worked Arnies tune up for 23 years and finaly just lived with it. Had lots of cars so never used it much so no big deal. It still has only has 69k miles. I pulled the trany to rebuild, replaced the TQ converter at the same time. It had a out of balance TQ converter all those years. never crossed my mine to look there.
