Propeller Shaft: On-Vehicle Service
APPEARANCE AND NOISE INSPECTION
Check the propeller shaft tube surface for dents or cracks. If damaged, replace the propeller shaft assembly.
Check the bearings for noise and damage. Repair or replace the bearings as necessary.
PROPELLER SHAFT VIBRATION
If a vibration is present at high speed, inspect the propeller shaft runout first.
2) If the runout exceeds specifications, disconnect the propeller shaft at the final drive companion flange; then rotate the companion flange 90°, 180°
and 270° and reconnect the propeller shaft.
3) Check the runout again. If the runout still exceeds specifications, replace the propeller shaft assembly.
