Seriously,

Get a jack.
Jack up the radiator cap
Drive the truck out from under the cap.
Drive a Chevy under the cap.
Lower cap and clamp securely.
Problem solved

More of a tapping than a vibration, but having had one go bad, I feel compelled to at least say "u-joint."

could be ujoint
tires
driveshaft imbalance
or... I had this happen once on a tight but hi mileage 4x4... Transmission slippage... yep it sounds weird but we diagnosed til we were blue in the face and finally ponied up the bucks for a transmission rebuild and the vibration or shudder was gone

I suppose you could rule out the tranny by getting it up to 80 and then putting it in neutral and coasting down to 70 (okay, maybe not, but that's all I got)

Does it matter what gear you are in.

When is the last time the tires were rotated (diagonal).


OR, like Ric suggested, replace everything but the radiator cap

I have an '03 Suburban with a vibration at 40mph and a more intense vibration at 70mph. Wish I knew the source.

That sounds like driveshaft, especially the 40mph vibration.

Aside from the wheel bearing I had replaced on the Exploder, the only other issue I had with vibration was an out of balance wheel due to a large clump of mud that was on the inside of the wheel (caused a vibration at hwy speeds)

I found the source of vibration finally on my 97 K1500 Suburban

NEW rotors & NEW calipers

found it like you're talking about...... remove each drive shaft & test drive

vibrated either way

had tires "road force" balanced multiple times....(different places)
even went as far as borrowing a buddy's tires & wheels to experiment with.

not saying that's your problem, but a vibration will drive you nuckin futs
