Since I completely removed the drive shaft I replaced them both while I had it out. It wasn't too difficult. I just marked all parts so when I reassembled it would line up just as when I removed it.

I had the same noise I think you are talking about in my 2011 5.7L sport. at around 50kms with a little uphill strain on the truck it sounded as if there was a slight vibration or chattering in the truck, I brought it to the dealer several times and they told me it was my torque converter, they replaced it under warranty but when I got it back,the chatter was gone but I had the very annoying vibration in my gas pedal. I have had it back many times since and they told me it's normal, i told them they are all full of crap and it was not normal because it was never there until they put the new converter in. The last time i went in I told them i wanted to test drive a bunch of Rams to compare them which I did only have to test drive one to know it did not have the problem with the vibration. They are currently ordering me a second torque converter. I will keep you informed as to the outcome....That vibration drives me insane...

Hello all.
I am also having the vibration through the gas pedal. After reading many forums, I am convinced there are three types of vibrations different folks are getting through the gas pedal. First, some people feel the road vibration through the tires. Second, some people are getting a vibration/shimmy when at low RPM and the truck is in MDS mode and trying to switch from four cylinder to eight cylinder. I get both of those and those don’t bother me at all, I believe they are quite normal. The third vibration is when the engine hits about 2000 RPM’s it causes a vibration through the pedal and steering wheel that feels like an electric shaver. That third vibration is making me absolutely hate my new 2012 Ram 1500 Big Horn when I drive it on the freeway, because it cruises right at 2000 RPM, the range where the vibration occurs. I have had the truck to the dealer a number of times and they say they can’t feel it. Funny, because the Ken Towery mechanics and my friends can all feel it and say it isn’t “normal”. I have also owned a Jeep Truck, a Ford F-150, and Chevrolet Blazer, and numerous other cars and have never had this happen. I have read many Dodge forums and have not yet seen anybody that has a real solution or received a real solution from Dodge/Ram. If you are having the third issue, vibration through the gas pedal at certain RPM’s, give me an e-mail at If I can get enough people having the same problem, maybe we can force the dealer/manufacturer to deal with it. Thanks
