Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1989 Toyota Pickup 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 178000 miles
I have a reacurring vibration that I have tried to solve with balancing, new tires and rotation of wheels. It seems to be coming from rear. As I go down the road it may run really smooth but when I go thru a bend or turn and then straight again it will vibrate, Not huge, just sutble. Almost as if when I went thru the turn it got the 2 rear wheels into a different sync. I can go thru another turn and it might put them back into sync?
The strange thing that seems to have started about same time is the brakes get real fine chater marks on the after a while that causes them to set up a terrible sound when I am braking to a stop. Like the sound you hear on some big rigs when they stop. I have sanded the rims and brake shoe and that will stop it for a while.
I have inspected all the parts and cannot see visually any thing really out of the ordinary. I have thought of replacing hubs and shoe, or wheels or axles but that all could lead to great expense with out solving the problem.
have the same problem?
