Anyone have a Driveline Vibration at 50+ mph

So a couple weeks ago, I noticed what felt like some sort of driveline vibration while on the highway. It starts around 50mph and gets worse the faster you go. I then take her in and had all the wheels re-balanced with no improvement. Yesterday, I went to TNT and managed to get in six 1/4 mile runs. Not only did this vibration get worse with each run, it was extremely bad at 130+ mph on my last run.

Was just wondering if anyone else experienced this issue before taking her in to the dealership.

One other note, I had a GoPro facing toward the back of my car, reviewed the footage and noticed the passenger side rear wheel would actually stop spinning half way through my burnout. ...The entire day, I was unable to achieve a good smoky burnout and I’m guessing this was why. Burnout method: all nannies off - Foot brake

First I've heard of the vibration or the one wheel peel. Good luck figuring it out. Maybe something is going on with the passenger side half shaft. Binding a bit and causing both issues. Idk.

Well first off, I would immediately stop beating on it. No burnouts, WOT, strip passes, etc. Also, take it to a shop or the dealer. It's likely the rear diff or an axle issue.

When/if you take it to the dealer, they're probably going to want to go through a thousand simple steps that probably won't do anything. New tires, new wheel, alignment, rebalance, suspension work etc. Not really any way to get around that, they have to cover their bases.

Good luck.

ok, a rear vibration or wheel issue and he is doing 130+ with it! I guess it cant be that bad or too much of a concern from him.
