How do I know if my drive shaft bearings are bad?
Besides, how do I know if my drive shaft center support bearing is bad?
Signs that indicate your center support bearing needs to be replaced include:
- Noises such as squealing and grinding, especially when the vehicle is slowing down.
- Lack of performance when steering or an overall resistance when driving.
- A shuddering feeling from your vehicle while you are accelerating after a stop.
what does a bad drive shaft bearing sound like? Abnormal Noises If the bushing or bearing that supports the driveshaft or the driveshaft U-joints wear out or fail, they can interfere with the driveshaft's ability to rotate correctly. This may result in unusual rattling, clunking, scraping, or even squeaking sounds from underneath the vehicle.

What does an unbalanced drive shaft feel like?
A common symptom of a failing driveshaft is an intense shaking coming from underneath the vehicle. Worn out u-joints or bushings can cause the driveshaft to vibrate. Vibrations caused by tire balance issues are speed sensitive while driveshaft vibrations aren't.
