Center support bearing on rear driveshaft vibration




At 65 to 70 I get a vibration around the center of the car. Could either be transfer case output flange bearing or center support bearing for rear drive shaft. Any input?

So of course you are aware of the rubber 'guibo' used to absorb some tortional pulses in the driveshaft. It fails more often than anything else down there; but that does not mean your 'midship' bearing isn't bad. I think a trip to the underside of your car is in order.

Cheers.
