MY 1995 PONTIAC TRANS AM HAS A BALANCE PROBLEM WITH THE DRIVE SHAFT. OVER 70 MPH THERE IS A VIBRATION FROM THE SHAFT. I'VE BEEN TOLD THERE WAS A RECALL ON THESE DRIVE SHAFTS, AND GM WILL REPLACE IT WITH A ALUMINUM ONE. ANY TRANS AM OWNERS OUT THERE HAVE THIS DONE? THANKS FOR ANY INFO . 1995 PONTIAC TRANS AM RAMAIR.

your best bet is to go to http://carpoint.msn.com and look up recall issues on your make and model F body, it will list contact information as to get more info on a recall of that issue.


Good Luck.

Yes it was a common problem. You may have to buy a new drive shaft if the car isn't under warrenty anymore. I'm not sure if GM will fix it.

If the car is no longer under FACTORY warrantee they will tell you get lost. It was a problem on 93-97 F-body's and there wasn't a recall but a service bulletin. A lot were replaced but they wouldnt touch mine because my 95 Z28 was modified with 4.10s. Buy a shaft from a 98-up f-body.

I paid $100 bucks for a 98 aluminum shaft from a salvage yard. Most 3rd gen and early 4th gen shafts were junk and got a "death rattle" at some point.
