need help with vibration in drie line and chatter in motor

hi all,
i own a 98 explorer i drove home from the city last week and noticed a vibration after 80km.it feels like its comeing from the drive line....i rulled out tyers after getting the front balanced...

i had it at 100km put it in neutral and let the revs die-out and the vibration didnt die-out then put it in to gear dropped it back so it would sit at higher revs and it disepeard then come back with gear change...

also while im at it iv'e got a chatter comeing from the motor that sounds like the timeing chain........

is there any 1 out there who can tell me what the problems are and also help with finding cheap parts (if you are in the usa)????????

shane.....

Drive line can be so many issues. Many are likely caused by out of balance tires, bad U joints, worn tires and even warped brake rotors. Have you ruled out any of these parts?

Where is this noise in your motor- front, left, right, rear? Sometimes you can hear it through a long screwdriver or small copper pipe if you do not have a sound scope.

Meh, there's always the good old "Ford Shimmy" at anything above 60 mph, although I think that was fixed sometime in the mid nineties. My '91 mustang shimmied, both of my brothers' Bronco II's shimmied, my father's two ford vans shimmied.... My '94 splorer does not shimmy, however, if that's any consolation.
