    hey guys. just seeing if any of you knowledgeable people on here know what the heck is going on with my truck.

    2000 toyota tacoma
    reg cab short box
    2.7L
    5 speed
    3 inch coil spacer and chev half ton rear leafs for a 3 inch lift
    31" bfg all terrains

    there is a vibration on the highway. anything over 80. i know what wheel unbalance feels like and this certainly is not it. its not in the steering wheel, its just the whole truck, the seat and everything, it feels like im in a vibrating massage chair on wheels. no this doesn't bother me that much but its just annoying and doesn't ride smooth like my other trucks have. just seeing if you guys have any ideas of what might be going on... wheel bearing? u-joint? etc. one wheel bearing has been replace by previous owner just before i bought it if that helps.

    thanks
    brett

    I had something similar on my 98. Thought for sure my clutch was going. Here, the u-joint was bound up (one at the third member) and I couldn't feel the play in it until I took the shaft off.

    would that make the whole truck vibrate on the highway though? and i noticed tonight it wasnt quite as bad as earlier but it still does it. its mainly around 110 km/h to 120 km/h
