Wheel speed vibration, or driveline speed vibration? Pretty plain the difference. I would put it up on jack stands and see if it can be duplicated, finding out if it's front or rear shouldn't be too...

The over center drag adjustment on box probably could use a bit of snugging too, but extreme caution there. Your talking about maybe a 1/16th of a turn, 1/8th if bad, unlikely. :drivin:

I don't trust em at all, 3 of mine release on their own. The only one I trust is in Humpty, I replaced the peddle and all with an electric actuator mounted to the cross member. :drivin:
