    Hey All
    New to the forum and have a issue with my Dodge.

    2002 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD Quad cab ,long bed with a 5.9L

    My truck has a vibration at 30- 35 mph. This happens on acceleration, deceleration, in neutral and coasting with the engine off. I have had new tires installed and rebalanced, rotated the tires and the same issue.
    Checked all the front end while it was on the lift and it all looks good.

    Any thoughts?

    U-joints seem good.
    Yes, two piece drive shaft.
    If makes any difference at all, those all seem to start after I had the brakes done.

    There is a saddle between the 2 driveshafts. Check there. Could be worn out. Happened to my friends 3/4 ton chevy long bed.

    Driveshaft and u-joint all check out good.
    Any other suggestions?

    Did you put new rotors on with the brake job?

    Rotors may be warped

    I had the rotors turned and they are still within specs, also no vibration under braking.
