  1. are you going to try the drive shaft route for trying to smooth out your truck? Best of luck with your endeavor!
  2. Post cool chevrolet and GMC antiques and collectibles here!
  3. Whatever happened? I know it’s been awhile since.
  4. Shake or Vibration Issues

    Excuse me for taking so to post a better shake video. This one it’s easier to see the shake and vibe. The only good thing about it is that I drive slow now on the highways to avoid the shakes thus saving gas! I’ll wear these tires out and by new ones and hope it gets rid of it. I already spent much on several road force balances etc. My truck SUCKS at high speed otherwise it’s doing fine with its clunky drive shaft at slow speeds.

    Wrong video. Sry guys. Hard to tell on that one.
  6. Shake or Vibration Issues

    Not dyno but real life. Dealer put on a set of tires from another truck off the lot and it not shake as bad. I’ll be going back to dealer to get next set of tires that don’t shake my truck. Wish me luck! Shaking started around 25k with sra’A
  7. These trucks are built just enough to do the speed limit and hardly any more. Nanny truck pos.
  8. My truck does this off on as well. Dealer says no codes so nothing done.
  9. At first it seems that way then it get shakes all the time.i think its tire ply loosens then makes shake more frequently. Put a new quality tire on and will stop for awhile then shakes start creeping in. older heavy car would not have such issues with tires.
  10. I’ve seen several threads on this and the video isnot working. Argh!
  11. Nothing changed. Going after market on springs at some point. Any suggestions on what brand?

    Go with bilsteins. You will be impressed with the handling hauling or not.
  13. Shake or Vibration Issues

    Just a thought from personal expierance. as tires age on our trucks there might be some legal tread left but the radials wear out inside the tire and hence vibes and shakes that can occur. Like my sra’s At 20k would make the truck shake and no balancing would help. So buying new tires with road force balance less than 20 would make the shake less for awhile.

    they are different in feel. Bilstein is firm and sporty I liked better with loads and towing. Ranchos better for helping hide vibes more caddie ride that hoped for when buying one of these full size trucks. Rancho adjustable on stiff settings I not get sport feel like bilstiens, just harsh. Sorry no straight answer here. Best set-up I thought was bilstein on front and ranchos adjustables on back! Merry Christmas. I did not intend on making all these changes with my truck, on a quest for a better ride.

So buying new tires would make the shake lessen then after so many more miles down the road the truck will start shaking again cause of internal tire wear.
