I have a 1989 ford Ranger 4x4 xlt that is having some shaking issues. A little back ground within the pase couple years the transmission went out and i had it rebuilt and it only has about 10,000 miles on it since then. The problem i am having is when i take off from a complete stop i get a shake that feels like it starts right under the center consle and works its way back till its gone at about 10 to 15mph. I have checked and changed almost everything. I changed all the ujoints replaced the main drive line and had tires balanced. I am leaning toward something being wrong with the transfer case posibly not properly adjusted(can they even be adjusted?)corectly. the reason why i think this is becasue when i put it in 4wd it will shake violently when i turn kind of like the shake that i feel on take off nust on steroids. Can some one please HELP or steer me in the right direction.

THANK YOU

Does it have auto hunts or manual hubs? Have you checked the u-joints in the axels? Is it a automatic or a manual trans?

Driveshaft u-joints or if its a extended cab check your carrier bearing. Both will cause that. Especialy the carrier bearing.
