The little libby is now my commuter since we just got the wife a WK2 EcoDiesel. It is at 197K now. It has had a weird vibration for a while that I notice more now that I am driving it regularly. It only occurs only at about 45-50 MPH and is load dependent. Very light load almost can't notice it. Heavy load, very noticeable. It' s very high frequency, low amplitude. At highway speed, smooth as usual. The rear axles have little play, but I know c-clip style axles can have some normal play. I had dealer check rear wheel bearings while it was at the dealer for something else and they said wheel bearings Ok. I recently replaced rear upper control arm due to worn out bushings and no change. I'm thinking drive shaft u joint??? Thoughts???? Oh yeah, if it is in full time 4x4, the symptoms are much better..

I would be checking the rear driveshaft U joints real close! You may actually have to remove them to find if you have a dry or seized up joint causing the vibration! :roll:
