The truck vibrates when I put a load on it. When I put my trailer on it seams to be worse.I checked all the ujoints and hanger bearing and fond the to be tight. When I did the chech I jacked the rear end off the ground and found it has a possy rear end in it. When I start off if I go easy it does not seem to be as bad. If I drive the truck empty with no load on it I have to really drive it hard to make it vibrate and it seems to only viberate after I pull a uturn or go around a traffic circle.I hope you can help me out with this problem as I just got this truck and I need it to do my part time job thank you in addvance wayne

Start by removing the drive shaft to check for tight spots in the u-joints. If you think it's a chattering in the rear axle, there is a whale oil additive that should be in there. The axle won't cause a problem when driving straight ahead.

Don't overlook a ride height problem. Low ride height will reduce drive shaft angle which can cause a vibration.
