    Ok so recently since installing camburg spindles and toytec coilovers on my 08 prerunner I have some weird vibs. It all started after getting an alignment.

    So I can be driving then get to freeway cruising speeds of 60+ and get a steering wheel vibration. Thought it was balancing so I got my tires balanced. That didn't help cause I still have the vibrations.

    While on the freeway the vibrations range from the sterring wheel to the floor ( I can feel it in my feet). Also take note that the vibrations aren't always going on. They are very spurratic yet very very often.

    I have tightened things up numerous of times but have not yet gone back to the alignment shop to try to get it fixed, its on the list but I don't have time unfortunately until Saturday and would like to possibly fix this before then.

    So I'm asking you guys what are some ideas or suggestions you guys have?!

    Thanks,

    Ollie

    thought about it and yes that might be it. i did make some driveshaft carrier drops and maybe need to back those off, re-adjust them, then tighten them back up.

    will look into that but idk how a driveshaft would make vibrations between the steering wheel and floor :confused:

    any other ideas??
