Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2000 Chevy S-10 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles
This is my 2nd or 3rd extended cab S-10. They have a two piece drive shaft. Eventually it vibrates and causes damage. Either the u joints need replaced or the center bearing thing that holds the drive shaft in place. It seems like avery two years I have to get one of these parts repaired. Last problem I had was the drive shaft comeing loose from the center housing and the drive shaft fell down with I was driving down the highway. It is also very interesting to note that the vibration always and only happens around 25 MPH and is smooth under and over that speed. I have read countless blogs from other S-10 owners who have the same problem, but I cant seem to find a solution so far. Many S-10 owners mistakenly think it is something stupid like tires that are not balanced or something to do with issues they caused from lowering their trucks. It is a fact that it is an issue with the poor design of the 2-piece drive shaft design. I was told by the transmission shop it is a manufacuture defect with all EXTENDED CAB S-10's TWO PIECE DRIVE SHAFT. Here's my question: Is there any way I can put a single piece drive shaft in and eleviate these problems? If so I need the specific info.
