50-60mph: Subtle humming noise w/ slight vibration. Very subtle
I have a 2 inch suspension lift, 32x11.5 BFG "All terrain" tires with aftermarket 16" wheels.
Prior to the lift, no vibration whatsoever.
Vibrates at the same speeds while gliding in nuetral (out of gear)
I searched/read tons of threads & forums discussing the issue but out of those did not come across any vibration problems with 1st generation Tacomas (hence me creating one).
Any ideas on what the problem is specifically? (i.e. tire balance, drive shaft issue after the lift, etc.?)
Hey there, I have had the same problem. Still do, but am fixing it this weekend. Ive talked to many poeple, and pretty much the only cure is so get rid of the 2 piece drive shaft we have and get a one piece solid 2 joint. Preferably a Tom Woods drive shaft. But... although poeple have bought shims and shimed there rear axle up to get the vibe to go away, but alot of poeple have done this and had no change at all in vibes. So thats why im not even ganna bother with the shims, and just get a new, better, drive shaft. Tom Woods makes the best drive shafts around, everyone uses him, his site is 4xshaft.com... hope this helps ya.
And the higher speed vibe is more likely the tires like toy4life said, cause I have the same tires. But not the 20-30 mph vibe. Thats def. the driveshaft.
