    I am noticing a vibration when slowing down. It doesn’t happen when I am
    going slow and then stop. It happens when I am driving about 30mph or faster and then come to a gradual stop. The vibration happens usually around 5-15mph. It isn’t the brakes. Seems like driveline or transmission.
    Any ideas?

    Have you had the tires balanced? If you can find a place that does force balancing, also are these the stock tires?

    dude, i just noticed you have a brand new truck....STR8 TO THE STEALERSHIP! dont hesitate. if youc an reproduce it at will, take a service advisor or whatnot with you and show them. that usually shuts them up immediately from saying anything about not quite covering it.

    They are the stock dunlops. I can feel it in the steering wheel. Feels like the whole truck is vibrating. The brakes feel fine. The vibration went away with a load of compost in the back. Makes me think its driveline shudder. The next appointment i could get was next wednesday.

    I have the same problem when i slow down, but it comes and goes. The front brake pads have been replaced recently plus front and back shocks. Im almost 100% sure I have axle wrap too. Would the axle wrap be a cause to the driveline shudder?

    I had the trans mount TSB done and it fixed the rumbling noise/vibration when decelerating between 25-20mph
