Driveline Vibration Issue - Possible Root Cause (some people are crazy...)

A buddy of mine sent this e-mail to me:


Driveline Vibration Issue - Possible Root Cause
This guy ran over a mattress and decided to keep going. The ensuing jumble finally whipped around enough

to put a tear in the gas tank, the subsequent lack of fuel is what finally brought this vehicle to its knees.

It had still managed to drive 30 more miles decently with a 60lb tangle wrapped around the driveshaft.

This genius complained that the vehicle had a "shimmy" when driving it high speeds.



This is what the dealership found..............

Yeah , I saw this on another forum. I still don't understand how he could drive that long and not know something was wrong! I worked at a friend's garage for a while, at least weekly we had people come in with crap wound around axles, crazy,
