    I did not go back to your previous discussions. Is yours 4wh drive? It matters a lot. If 4 wheel you have double the "spinning" parts. If you have 2 wheel drive it should be much easier to find the source

    Mine is a two wheel drive - but it seems it affects both the 2 and 4 wheel drive -

    I have a NEW only 1000 miles 2010 Tahoe LTZ with exact same issues. It is at the dealership for the second time for this problem. It has had the problem from the first day.
    Has anyone found a fix for this issue? This thing shakes so bad you don't want to drive it and it is embarrassing when you have passengers with you. This vehicle is way to expensive to ride like an OLD dump truck.

    How about GM what are you going to do about this issue?

    Try again. It may have been a temporary glitch with one of our servers.

    Having the identical problem with my 07 Tahoe. Dealer did the balance thing even though I was specific about how and when. Didn't work. Back in tomorrow.

    It is definitely something in the drive train that can reach resonance. I tried Emailing the GM ID in #72 and it was returned.

    I have taken my truck in 3 times now, first they road force balanced the tires even though it had less than 3000 miles, still vibration, second time, they replaced a hub bearing and guaranteed that worked, still vibration, third time, they replaced a tire, still vibration.

    This is getting ridiculous, throw in a rattle under glove compartment, bad pull to the right, iPod USB popping/crackling noise, and this 2010 $55k Tahoe is a lemon for sure.

    Oh and my navigation system quit working today!!! :cry:

    there is a list that u follow to review a problem
    tires and rims
    ball joints
    brakes
    sway bars
    shocks
    driveshaft
    axles
    pinion
    transmission
    most of those problems will go to the driveshaft angle and balancing. go to a transmision shop maybe they can shed some information on this. pep boys will also know about this. most 4x4 shops also can add information

    good luck

    Why don't you just post what they did instead of pushing business and a million phone calls their way?

    I'm not calling miami and I am certainly not driving to miami. The only thing that makes sense to me about your post is your recommendation for a quality dealership.

    Good techs and engineers solve problems, everybody else just gets in the way.

    Don't know exactly what they did - that is why I gave out the information so maybe you can get some help - spent over two months with another dealer and they could not fix the problem - the only thing I know for sure is they worked on the drive shaft because it had yellow markings on the shaft and the part where is mounted - it seemed they used the markings for alignment - I'm sure you don't want to call Miami - just trying to help - I even took GM to arbitration ( certainly not pushing business ) and lost so it seemed to me anyone having the same very frustrating issue would appreciate some guidance - fact is a lot of the mechanics at the dealerships don't know how to fix the problem - maybe you have another solution without spending money on long distance - good luck -

    PS> Forgot to tell you a month after the problem was fixed had to replace the rack and pinion .... again not sure if it had anything to do with this issue or as a result of the vibration - not sure -

    Hello All...
    My dealer seems to have fixed mine. I had bought mine Certified Used and they had a new but off brand set of tires. I am a mechanical engineer and I swore it had nothing to do with balance and when they balanced my tires the first trip back without it working I was furious.

    The second trip back they had it two days. When I went to pick it up I found they put new tires on it, Goodyear Wrangler AT/S. Look to be the same ones that come stock. I was immediately apprehensive and told them so. I took it home and with almost 2K on it since I haven't been able to reproduce it. They said one of my tires was out of round. How they could tell that, I don't know.

    So, to make a long story short, mine seems to be fixed.

    Hello 71cruiser,
    So glad to hear you found the problem. And it was the tires! A lesson for us all.
    Goodyear probably built a batch of junk tires and tried to pass them off. It happened to me on a vehicle that came with goodyear Integrities and a new set of Michelin Cross terrains solved the problem (dealer supplied after much prodding and aggravation) I will never buy a Goodyear tire after that.

    Be wary, if the source of the vibration is not cured your tires will weaken and wear unevenly. You will experience accelerated wear and the vibration will be quite noticeable again. Good tires seem to a better job of dampening the vibration, still a band aid fix. Odd how the old set ran 90% better on my buddy's truck. I made him take them off anyway because I feared they would screw up his truck eventually.

    Seems to be the truck is trashing the tires and that makes things worse. The tires are not initially faulty.
