Symptoms - driveshaft

Just wondering what some symptoms are of issues with the driveshaft AND differential? I noticed I have a leak at the u-joint where the differential is...also, ONLY since I had new tires put on I've had what feels like wheel wobble/hop at 40-45 mph and 56+. Could this be the issue?

I would have the tire checked for possible balance issue but if you have a leak the pinion seal is the likely culprit there fairly easy to change out in a drive way assembly torque is the key to not destroying the pinion bearings from over torque and while down there I would check for any play I the u-joints if any replace can cause a vibration also

Are you hearing any squeeking or weird noises

when breaking there's squeaking, even though i just replaced the pads. also get a grown/whine when in reverse pressing the gas or going up a driveway...and sometimes accelerating from a stopped position.

If you used cheap pads stopping will squeek all the time make sure pads have a lot of lube on the backs to aid with noise as for noise on accel Deff check the u joints out they may be starting to go bad

I'm in total agreement with what's been stated. Sounds like you need a seal and a Ujoint. A rythmic sound and squeak are very good indicators of a Ujoint. While a pinion leak is a seal.

Thanks for the help guys.

Looked on youtube for similar issues.



That's what my truck sounds like on rare occasion going forward, and every time going up a driveway in reverse.

After having the truck looked at, turns out the place that put my tires on had EVERY tire OUT of balance. Even after they had rebalanced them twice. They're excuse was the truck was getting old, and that just happens. No refund/compensation. Went to Tireman in Findlay, $40, everything fine.

That excuse they used is old. When they lose business that just happens too. Glad you got 'em balanced right.
