All you people with 94 900 front vibration problems. I found out what mine was. I have been looking for mine for over two years. On the drivers side, if you pull the half shaft out of the trans (Std) you will find a bushing inside the differential unit. It wears out. The part is about $20.00 Mine is a smooth as glass to 50 mph and after 80 mph, and only under deceleration or cruse. I was told that it has been seen before. The dealer I use is Roger Beasley in Austin. The parts and service people are great. I do all my own work and they are very helpful. I live about 600 miles from them. There is a closer dealer, but we won't discuss this in open forum. Norm Boyce "Keith Grider" <> wrote in message news:uQhU4.2752$ > Brent, > > I agree with your analysis.
