A Vibration Thread of My Own 07 Crew Max

So the main problem i am having is a constant full truck vibration. From 50-75mph it smoothes out real nice going 80, but the State Trooper last week told me that was not acceptable... i have had this problem for the last 40,000 miles or so. the truck currently has 240,000 on the ticker. The truck vibrates enough that my passenger seat looks like it is at a Pantera concert doing its best at head banging. Though the steering wheel doesnt really vibrate unless i apply the brakes. Which stops once under 50mph

Steps i have taken so far...
Replaced lower control arms
Replace steering tie rods
Replaced CV axles
Replaced bilstein 5100 struts 2.5" lift
extensive trips to the alignment shop
have my tires filled with 8oz of ceramic balancing beads (295/75-18 nitto terra grappler g2 on moto metal 951s)
and replaced the needle bearing driver side axle with the bushing kit from east coast gear supply (i did have a loose cv axle. this kit fixed that extra movement)
I have new pads front and rear, and new rear rotors.
checked my emergency brakes for binding (all good)

I do have about a 1/4" of give on the 2 piece drive shaft carrier bearing. Normal?

what else am i missing that could possible help me locate and snuff this problem out?
It is bad enough that my girlfriend claims her 4 door jeep on 35's has a better ride. Not Acceptable!

i have read over 40 different threads with solutions that i have tried and none have quite seemed to do the trick.

Good day to Y'all from Texas.

There was a time that I was awesome, then the cops showed.

Sounds like you need cab mounts

I'm not judging...I'm just sayin

I am sure that you have done this with as many miles as you have, but what about swapping the wheels from front to back and see if the vibration changes. Also, you might want to look and see if your rims are hub centric. From MotoMetal website "A: Most aftermarket wheels are manufactured with a center hole that will fit a wide range of vehicles. The hub-centric ring is an installation tool used to help hold the wheel perfectly centered during installation. Use of a hub centric ring can help in reducing minor vibrations. Proper installation and torque sequence is required to correctly center a wheel with or without a hub centric ring."

Also, I checked my center carrier bearing and it had about 1/4 inch play in it.

From my experience I'm saying it's you're carrier bearing on the drive shaft. And for your steering wheel vibration when stepping on the breaks that is warped rotors.

I saw rotors on the original post, but re-read and it was only the rears. You are correct the warped front rotors would definitely cause the shaking during braking.

Thanks for checking that.
I have swapped Tire positions many a time. They seem to be smooth for about 500 miles/ 3 days and start to shake again. Brand new they run about a week before the problem shows its face again . Also the moto website claims to have the same bore as the Tundra hub at least on that specific wheel.

Checked. They seem to be pretty tight with no clicking. Brake check confirmed this, but they are the originals.

Welcome to my world. I've been dealing with this for years. The worst part is it comes and goes for me.

Several wheels and tires. Several road force balances. Checked everything I could except axle and spindle runout. I did have it on a frame rack at one point and digitally measured. All fine.

Next is driveshaft rebalanced (this was replaced by dealer once long ago).
Then check axle and spindle.
Then mysteriously, the truck might burst into flames.

I've kinda be waiting on a Mercedes or BMW to hit me from the side. Running a red light or something. Just saying I wouldn't mind having a 2015 in desert sand Mica rock warrior edition. Come on car gods...

So I may be on to something. I replaced the front Rotors last week. No changes in vibration, but... I noticed that my right cv axle has a bit of an oscillation 2mm at max while the driver's side has no deviation to its rotation. Would this be enough to shake my whole truck?

2mm, not likely

I'm still slacking on getting my driveshaft balanced. I am thinking the 5100s are compromised as at least one rear is leaking. Bad suspension was causing a vibration on my 4runner. It felt just like a wheel out of balance. Had the wheels balanced and the problem didn't get much better. Put a 2" suspension lift on and it was completely gone. (springs, shocks, hats + Alignment)

The took it out for a ride last week. Vibes weren't there most of the day, even after sitting all winter. Then when I hopped in it to go home, the vibes were back at 62-72 mph like it always is. Completely random

That could be a possibility. I blew my driver side 5100 strut on a low water crossing (snapped it at the base) , and the new redesigned model is 1/2 inch shorter. So my truck leans towards the driver's side with the newer strut. I wonder if my passenger side is ruined.

Ok so this weekend I made slight strides towards my end goal of getting a smooth ride. I jacked my rear end up and had my dad drive the truck up to 45mph. The driver's side had a slight vibration, but the passenger side got the wobbling so bad. That if my tool box hadn't had been bolted down the entire thing would have been bucked off. End if the truck had about 3 inches travel at a very high rate.

So I'm guessing a bent wheel or out of round tire.

Problem found or at least one of the reasons for my vibration. Rack and pinion bushings. I picked my truck up with our forklift at work and found that the rack moves an inch back and forth. New parts ordered just in time for a 3000 mile trip this weekend. Hopefully it solves my my issues
