Customer Question
130,000 miles. I purchased it...
I have a 2002 Ford Excursion 2wd with a 5.4 engine and 130,000 miles. I purchased it in May and have been dealing with an issue with it ever since. First I will tell you what I have already done to it.
Purchased 4 brand new tires
Front End Alignment
New Passenger Tie Rod
New shocks all the way around
New brake rotors all the way around
New brake pads all the way around
Have had tires balanced 3 times
The problem I am having is a severe vibration. It will vibrate so bad the steering wheel and your hand can be visibly seen shaking. It starts it at about 45mph and gets severe at 65mph. It will intermittently stop the vibrations for a few minutes and then start back up. It does it on all types of roads. I have looked at the U-Joints and Center Bearing and they appear to be tight. I feel like the next step would be to replace the U-Joints and Center Bearing and have the Drive Shaft balanced. Any suggestions or ideas? I am open to anything.
