Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.I have been in the auto repair business with my own shops since 1975 and also teachautomotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going todirect you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it. Sounds like you were very thorough. This sounds to me like a problem inside the differential. It may need a new spider gear or carrier bearing, hard to say for sure without seeing it. Also check for any signs of metalThanks, Ron

COULD IT STILL BE IN THE REAR DIFFERENTIAL EVEN IF THE VIBRATION GOES AWAY WHEN I PULL THE DRIVESHAFT

The differential is not turning with the shaft out, if I understand you right.Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on.Ron
