tamaz22 : Hi,welcome to JustAnswer.com,my name is XXXXX XXXXX get started solving your problem!The next thing I would inspect is the driveshaft ,if the u joints are worn then that is the most likely cause,can you tell me when the vibration starts and where it is felt,steering wheel,floor etc... Is there any vibration while braking
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ujoints seem to be fine vibration in floor

Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.
At what speeds?how about the axle shafts are those original?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

starts out at get go.. smooths out at 40 mph not original axles they've been replaced

Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.
Have they been replaced recently,as of late we've been having problems with aftermarket reman axles
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

There seems to be some play in the front and rear ujoints and they look dry. The hanger bearing seems ok. I think it would be wise to rplace the ujoints and go from there thank you

Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.
As far as I know there are no ujoints avaible the repair consists of replacing the drive shaft to the tune of about $700 plus labor,our parts department has never been able to locate just u-joints.

while driving if u put car in neutral it still vibrates ?

Expert:  tamaz replied 1 year ago.
Dido ,the drive shaft is still spinning ,but there is no load on it from the transmission or engine because trans is in neutral ,so with it spinning with poor u-joints you will still feel the vibration.
