drive shaft vibration???
Posted 13 August 2006 - 03:52 PM
well, after i got it back togehter, i now have a slight vibration in drive line (feels like the rear) when i take off from a stop. start rolling, slight vibration (half second) then it smooths out and runs fine. 97 obw 115k miles.
my first guess was the support bearing, maybe it's not tight, but i have no experience with anything like this so i don't know. any thoughts? i guess i should try the FWD fuse to see if that makes a differeence.
thanks , john

Its a u joint in the center of the car most likely. Het under there and shake the driveshaft, there shold be no play in the u joints or bearing. It will get worse with time and make the car undriveable. Go to a junk yard OR a driveshaft shop and let them rebuild it. Dont go to subaru as its not worth the 400.00 + procetag.
