Having problems with your 1990 Ford Ranger SuperCab ?

Vibration with vehicle speed

\015 I have a vibration that follows the vehicle speed. It is stronger at acceleration. Its accompanied by a scraping noise. It came on suddenly. I have replace the u-joints and carrier bearing, and the wheel bearings seem to be ok. I have rotated the tires and dont see any real wear.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 23-11-2020

Answers :

Make sure your u-joints are properly line up. there should be a slight rasied area the end caps should sit flush on. its common when someone doesnt double check the seating on U-joints. i have done this a few times. If the truck was on a rack hope that the drive shaft was not hitting the rack causing it to bend.

\015\012the scraping noise may be the carrier bearing TQ'ed too much? what did you TQ it at? they are very sensitive.
\015\012good luck, hopefully its just out of alignment with the u-joints and improperly TQ'ed bearing.
