My 2004 Titan LE King Cab 4x4 with Off Road Package and Big Tow Package has developed a terrible vibration or wobble in the 40-45 mph range. It started after I hit about 105K miles and seems to be getting worse. I now have 129K miles and I have already tried replacing the U-Joints on the front propeller shaft which had no effect whatsoever.

Has anyone else had this happen to their Titan and is there a known fix. I could try replacing the front differential/carrier but it is a pretty expensive part to buy just to experiment.

Any ideas to resolve this would be appreciated. Shims, driveline balancing??

Look at the bottom of this page for links. How old are the shocks? Ball joints?

Tires have been balanced three different times at Les Schwab in Oregon. I also put Bilstein's HD shocks (yellow tubes/blue boots) on all four corners at 60K miles.

PRG Leveling lift on front at 15K miles, all else is stock.

I would guess it's a bad shock they do have 69k miles on them now and 15 of it with a spacer.

Forget trying to fix it. The Nissan Corporate Consumer Services states they will not try fixing my truck anymore with the same problem as yours because it is a normal characteristic of the vehicle. I am working on a Class action Law suit for this. If anyone would like to join please let me know. I will direct you to who to goto. Also I am talking with the FTC and BBB to resolve my issue. I reammed you also filing complants with the FTC and BBB as well.

Mine did it from day one. Starts at 46 mph, continues till 48 then goes away. I ended up replacing tires at around 30k and the vibration was much less. Funny thing is the tires I bought were used, and about 1/2 inch smaller that the stock tires. Changed my speedo by about 2 or 3 mph. I just replaced my tires again, with the correct size and the vibration is back! LOL. Should have stuck with the smaller tires. A few months ago, I was rear ended by some a$$hole doing lots of damage to my bed. Totalled the bumper, pushed the bed into the cab slightly. While I was waiting for my truck to be repaired. I told the ins company I wanted a full size truck as a loaner vehicle as I needed it for my job. They gave me a 2013 Titan! And guess what? This new truck with 11k on it vibrated as bad or worse than my 06 Titan does! I guess it is a problem with all these trucks, but changing the tires to a smaller diameter greatly lessened the vibration on my truck. Are you listening Nissan? (do you care??)
