U-Joint clip from factory
Scotty33 posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500Hey all, sorry if this is the wrong area. 2008 Suburban 4WD here and I bent this weird clip on my u-joint, curious if I need to replace u-joint or not? I have 4 u-joints and only the one on the front diff has it. Very thin metal that I can’t imagine does much. New ones don’t come with it. What’s this things purpose? Can I just pull it and forget it? Never seen one of them before anyway. Thanks guys!
Floor Mounted Shifter Vibration
dudleykid posted a topic in 2000-2014 Silverado & Sierra HDI have a vigorous vibration on my floor mounted shifter at 65mph. This weekend I got my tires balanced, replaced my u joints, and tightened down the bolt in the cab that holds my shifter in the housing compartment. It still vibrates. I took it to a mechanic and they determined a bent driveshaft. Next, I took the drive shaft to a drivetrain specialists, they recommended building me a custom driveshaft since the other shaft was unfixable, and (from the receipt) balanced the driveshaft (not sure if the new or old driveshaft was balanced). The vibration is exactly the same at the same speed. Where do I go now? I am going to head back to the drivetrain specialists shop. I have a 2006 2500 Silverado 6L V8 Ext cab. Sidenote: A muffler/exhaust system that was not tight could shake around, but it would rather shake my truck as a whole and not just the floor mounted shifter, correct?
