406 driveshafts - Quinny
Correct me if I'm wrong,but do 406 driveshafts have some sort of balancing weight on?

The reason I ask,is because I've been plagued with a slight vibration on mine,for 12 months,and despite doing the obvious of having tracking checked,wheels balanced etc,I haven't a clue as to what's causing it.It sort of comes on at about 60mph plus,and is there for about 3 seconds,goes away for the same amount of time,comes back...............

Got talking to a lad at my local ham radio club the other night,who,as well as being a tyre fitter,told about this supposed weight,as he also has a 406,albeit an older variant.

Is he telling the truth,or is he having a giraffe,and if he is telling the truth,and it does exist,how,apart from being ripped off from the dealer,can I get it so it's spot on?

Driveshafts on many cars have weights on,not to balance but to deaden vibrations.

If the 406 layout is similar to the Xantia's, then assuming the cv joints are ok, I would be looking for wear in the offside shaft intermediate bearing.
