Well folks, it goes like this:
1) After having my truck examined, it has been brought to my attention that the Torque converter is the culprit causing great vibration starting at 68 mph. There is also considerable vibration when the truck shifts up as I let up on the throttle.
2) I'm also told that the clutch packs in the rear axle are shot, causing vibration/grinding sounds when turning/accelerating from a stop.

and 3) I'm just about broke!

......so, does anyone have some info/advice on how to repair this as inexpensively as possible? I'm not a great mechanic, but follow repair manuals well?!!?!

When my torque converter started to shake over 60mph, it was 2 weeks before i had to get a new tranny.

Leave the rearend until after you fix the TC/tranny.

Good luck,

I did a torque converter replacement on the e40d in my 93 about 3 months ago. Got the converter (heavy duty) from a local shop at my uncle's discount for $170. Also got the Filter and gasket for another $19. The shop said regular price for heavy duty is around $300 but a stock replacement was about $180. Bought my 17 quarts of MERCON V at napa (2.50 per) and went to work on it. All in all for the converter, fluid, filter, gasket and pizza/beer for the two friends that helped was $250. should be around the same for you with a stock replacement converter and BTW mine was showing the same symptoms and it definately solved the problem. Hope this helped.

P.S. unless you have a REALLY good transmission jack i would recommend taking the t-case off for the pull. That damn tranny is heavy enough without it.
