Customer Question
Hello my name is...

Hello my name is ***** *****. I have a 99 Mercury Mountaineer 5.0 AWD. I have a vibration in the driveline (not necessarily front end, no steering wheel vibration). All of the tires match and are new and road force balanced. I have replaced the upper control arms, the end links, both front CV axles, both front wheel bearings, the u joint and cv joint on the prop shaft, and both u joints in the rear driveshaft. It has also had a wheel alignment.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Minor binding when turning at low speeds, an audible rumble at any speed above 45, and the real vibration starts after 55/60mph.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

  1. Can you remove the front driveshaft and tell me if there is still a vibration while driving?
  2. While driving and the vibration is at its worst, if you swerve aggressive but safe does the vibration come and go?

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
