is it a fast vibration or slow, like does it shake with the speed of the tires? ive had alot of issues with k5 blazers in the past with death wobble due to having bigger tires. if one side is hot and the other is not. and theres no play up down or side to side, might be a good idea to disassemble the bearings and repack them with grease. ive stripped k5s before where the axles were bone dry
