I got all the bearings replaced and I still have the same exact problem. Nothing has changed.

Here is what I'm going to try next.

The wife's vehicle is a 2002 Tracker and uses the same bolt patern and has the same size tire as what I have on my Sportge. I'm going to put the Trackers tire/wheels on my Sportage and see if the problem goes away.

check Advance Auto for a price on a new axleshaft. I bought one there a while ago and the price was pretty reasonable.

Been there done that <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> $69.99. O'Reilly's want's $59.99 for remanufactured. I'd rather go new for $10 more and not have to mess with the core hassle.

I replaced both axle shafts and still have a vibration from 25-35. It's not as bad so I'm thinking it has to tire related. My front tires were worn & feathered on the inside so moved them to the rear when my vibration problem started

I'm thinking that the vibration is being caused by the feathered edge on the tires.

Body Damage is Cool
I had the same problem before I sold my Kia, my BFG ATs would vibrate the Kia like crazy, put on my BFG MTs and it was smooth, after I bought my Jeep I put the MTs on the Jeep and new tires on the Kia to sale it, It ran smooth when I sold it. Hope thats your problem but that was alot of work getting to that point. How is your U-joints and and slip yokes on your drive shafts? Just a thought.

I wasn't getting any movement in the u-joints but it is a thought.

The front bearings and axle shafts did need to be replaced so it wasn't a loss.

On top of this my knock sensor is bad so I have that unpleasure to look forward to. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />
