Front End Vibration...

I'm not a gear head so bear with me...while driving down a straight away my 01 Durango 4x4 began vibrating in the front end of the truck. It felt almost like my tire had gone flat but nope! I pulled into a parking lot, engaged the 4WD and the problem stopped momentarily until I put it back in 2WD. This happened once before after trying to engage the 4WD (high), but stopped after about 20ft of driving. It almost feels like the 4WD is partially engaging for no reason...ever heard of anything like this?

im not to sure of the fix to this but i say have your Balljoints checked, this will also make it shake if one is bad or so, and if one is then it can mess up some parts in your steering and get more costly to fix.

hard to tell without actually looking but like stated before check balljoints, hub bearings.

if the vibration goes away when your speed is increased then I would recommend a balance and rotate of your itres.

Def need to get looked at soon when it comes to balljoints lives are at stake.
