Well, some people keep driving and driving and....


Driveline Vibration Issue - Possible Root Cause

This guy ran over a mattress and decided to keep going. The ensuing jumble finally whipped around enough to put a tear in the gas tank, the subsequent lack of fuel is what finally brought this vehicle to its knees.

It had still managed to drive 30 more miles decently with a 60lb tangle wrapped around the driveshaft.

This genius complained that the vehicle had a "shimmy" when driving it high speeds.


This is what the dealership found..............

I heard of a guy getting hundreds of feet of barb wire fencing wound around the driveshaft but never anything like that.

To think most of that is springs..... cut them and they go flying....

Good question, it looks to be a car, it has leaf springs, with the springs on TOP of the axle, looks sorta like a GM axle flange, but REALLY a guess there. Being GM hasn't done a leaf spring axle car in a LONG time and GM cars usually were springs UNDER the axle. So that is about as much as I can surmise from those picts....
