Re: 1997 E-350 Rear End Vibration
Sorry, but I have to take the prize back. The vibration is worse than ever.
At highway speed it is a rumbling, low-pitched, cycling virbation that gets worse and then gets better. It feels to be coming from the rear and when I brake sometimes it gets much worse, with the entire van shaking horrible. But than, sometimes it doesn't. They did adjust the brakes, so I'll have to add that as a possible problem.
I can be running along, with just a slightly noticeable rumbling vibration and then the van will suddenly start shaking and vibrating. It's feels like the rear axle's getting ready to fly off.
It's to the point that when I run to Lowe's I wonder if I'll make it back home.
Thusfar, the dealer has done the pinion bearing and a U joint, $1000, and said to bring it back in. I've heard before and it's always meant more money, still have the problem! But I am ready to let them have to drive for awhile.If it breaks down on them, they can call the tow truck.
