    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    Obviously not the best thing to use but all I have right now. Did this about five times to make sure it was close. Driveline vibe is mostly gone... Very subtle now, which is good enough for me. I'll eventually get the upper links to truly fix this (I hope) but it's at least 70% better now...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    Yeah, the angles are weird because I was on a downward sloped driveway. I concentrated on the relative angles vs the absolute. I included the propshaft slope because that allows for the relative measurement to be made. Glad you mentioned the weird angles, I'll re-measure in my garage tonight...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    What a pain in the ass. I went out and adjusted it all today and had fun with the whole relative angle thing - if I extend the lower links to twist the nose downward, it increases the angle at the diff, but also increases the angle at the transmission (of course, right? Pulling the nose of...

    Are you guys concerned with your carbon footprint at all?

    Oooo instead of larger tires, go to the smallest size that will fit your wheel. Less rolling resistance, less rotating mass, and your speedo will tell you you're doing 100 mph when you're actually doing 55 where efficiency is best! Plus, lower ride height for better aerodynamics. Win win win...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    Not to split hairs, but the greasable ones are closer to 17$ each, but still way less than the 35-40$ I mentioned. I swear I looked them up before posting that, but I can't find them now. It's fallen off my list of orders from rockauto, so I can't go back and get an exact number. In the end...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    Slightly less in u joints, I think 35-40 each for the moogs? I paid 100 just for the balance, assumed another 100 for the install at a local shop, for 300 ish total. No install cost as I carried it in as well. Not sure if they'd do both the install and the balance for that 100, I didn't ask...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    Agreed - changing them like any other car doesn't work out great, which is ridiculous, but just the way it is. To me, the extra cost of having a ready-to-go shaft for the 100 is worth it, over saving a relatively small amount by buying the parts and taking it to a shop. I'd be looking at 300$...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    I used Moog. Lots of folks swear by Spicer joints, others only OEM toyota, etc. Everyone has an opinion on the best ones, but I rarely have issues with quality aftermarket parts.

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    I've done u-joints on several others cars and trucks and this is the first time I've ever had to pull the drive shaft back out multiple times to get it right. Smacking it with a hammer to get it to unbind works but has to be done repeatedly in different locations to get it to unbind right...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    I looked for anyone building a CV drive shaft for the 100. I found some companies that built a double cardan joint, but nothing with a CV joint like in a normal CV axle. I'm sure I could get it custom made, but that can't be cheap. Pressing them out was a pain, lots of hammering (I don't...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    Have read through the list in post 101, super helpful! Seems like lateral runout or driveshaft and yolk are most likely problems by that table. I don't have tools to do run out on anything, but have a new balanced rear shaft and can say the vibration goes away when the rear shaft is out.

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    So, I finally got off my lazy ass and used my phone to measure the angles. I get the transfer case at 2.9 degrees down (top back), and the pinion tilted 0.2 degrees up (top back), for a total angle of 2.7 degrees at rest. I really really hope this is the problem, and will do my best to get that...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    Honestly, at this point, I think I'm going to adjust the AHC sensors to bring it a bit lower and see if I can get the vibration to go away with height changes. If I can, then I might sink some money into upper links. I'm north of $1000 chasing this issue and have nothing to show for it; I'm...

    Pulsing/droning vibration at highway speeds

    No luck, sadly. I've adjusted the arms a few times to get the angle right - first I had too much length and it made for an interesting vibration around 35 and 75+ mph. Shortened them by one rotation, and now it's basically the same sort of droning noise from 70 mph up as before the new links...

    Wanted  CFL: OEM (non-ahc) Torsion Bars

    Hello all - looking for a set of OEM torsion bars from a non-AHC 100. My AHC bars are cranked to max now with a winch and sliders, and I want to experiment with non-ahc bars on the front end. I remember contacting a member in Ocala that was selling a pair awhile back but can't find that post...

    Missed out on Hundreds in the Hills? Lets talk (Ideas for Southeastern 100 series event)

    I've been going to windrock for years; only once in the 100 though. It's got tons of trails but knowing which ones to travel down can be a challenge. Easy is practically a graded road. Hard is for rock crawlers. Medium is anything from mild to stuck on a wet clay hill waiting for rescue (for...

    The "Un-Official" Off Road Trailer Pic Thread

    Hey @84shortyota, you reminded me to post my also mostly finished trailer build up here! Rear kitchen view. Can see the fold-down counter top, extinguisher, cooking spoons/spatulas, paper towel holder, bottles for cooking oils and vinegar, sink, storage bins, and cooler. Cooler is mounted on...

    New to me LX470

    Awesome random group of (mostly) venezuelans having a big ole camping trip/reunion/food fest on the beach. Great people, super friendly. Hopefully have some new wheeling friends to go out with! They had folks from as far away as Texas here. Every vehicle was a toyota except for a single...

    New to me LX470

    Went on a Thanksgiving camping trip. Hardly any four-wheel driving, but lots of camping/biking/hiking/playing at the beach/eating going on. We all had a blast, even the kid. He was pretty sad about coming home today! I think I made the lower links too long - vibration has changed to...
