Vibration when accelerating
 
My truck gets a very noticable vibration whenever I accelerate, in any gear. Plus there are some noises, clanking, dinging? also. I can't describe the noises very accuratly but the vibration is very noticable and is worse the harder the acceleration. What could be the cause?

possible wheel bearing... get it checked to see if it needs replacing

I have a fix to everyones problem , ive found out how to fix the shutter when starting off and the vibration when driving . if anyone needs to know how you fix these aggravating problems . the fix cost about $160 bucks. buy 3 new ujoints ( i used moog brand ) , drop the center bearing down about an 1 1/2 and put shims in , bolt everything back up and your problem is fixed . the problem is the drive shaft angle . why toyota let this problem go as long as they are , its crazy , and they still dont have a fix for it . the ujoints are in a bind because of the angle . on these trucks , even though the ujoints look good while theyre bolted to the truck , you will be able to tell once you take them off . the ujoints take care of the vibration while driving and dropping the center bearing takes care of the shutter starting off . if you have any questions , just pm me .
