hey, i have a pretty bad vibration in my ute between about 60-85kph its fine above and below these speeds its fine
i have had the wheels balanced and that made it slightly better but it is still pretty bad. i dont think its the drive shaft or diff because that would just be a constant thing (right?)
can anyone tell me something that it could be?

thanks jac

Any kind of vibration will have its natural harmonic, so only evident at a certain RPM range.

Tire balance will do exactly what you describe. If they are 12s, suspect the balance even though they been done twice. You can test this by switch front & back wheels and see if it improves.

For the driveshaft, just unbolt it and rotate 180 degrees and bolt back in.

I was chasing this issue for ages on 3 different cars. Could only trace it to my current one where it was a faulty tyre. The belt was coming away from tyre.

Is the vibration through the steering wheel or just felt in your feet etc? Mine was only through feet. Steering wheel and gear stick were fine.

Also could be I found my drivers ball joint fully seated after 3000kms and I had to do the nut up tighter
