I have a 2001 durango with over 130000 i went 4 wheeling in the snow a week later i had a vibration in the front end. I noticed that the caliper bolts came loose tightened them up. Vibration wasnt has bad but was still there. I have replaced the following calipers, brakes, hub with bearings and the cv axle but kept the shaft that comes out of the t case that attaches into the axle part. After replacing all of this still have the vibration. My question is I think my next part to replace to get the vibration gone would be the shaft the only problem I am having is finding a place that sells this part. Does anyone have any suggestions on where i maybe able to get one. thx

What kind of vibration are you experiencing? (Low rummble or fast) Does it change with speed? I'm guessing all what's left is rotors if you haven't replaced those yet, maybe a bent rim, possibly bearings in your front diff.
It really sounds to me like a bent/warped rotor. Have them checked at a brake place and have them planed if they're not flat.
Do this test go about 30 miles an hour down an abandon parking lot at night or down a country road and hit the brakes hard. Not hard enough to lock up but hard enough to stop quickly. Did the vibration just get worse or was it about the same?
If you find yourself answering it got worse, likely a bent rotor.

Ok little more info the vibration is like a rumble it begins at around 30 mph then you stop feeling it around 55-65 mph. It only happens when you accelerate. As soon as you take your foot of the gas it stops. That's why i thought it was my axels. I havent looked at my rotors yet. Could it be the rack and pinion? Or am i looking more into the Transfer CAse?
