    What was the last year they had steel drive shafts instead of aluminum for the sport Trax..? I have a 2007 I'm having to vibration problem as well after 65 miles an hour but it could be something else if my driveshaft is already aluminum

    The steel drive shaft problem was with the gen1.
    If your '07 is vibrating. Most likely a u-joint or carrier bearing. Or a tire with belt seperation or tread runout.

    The brilliant move on Ford's part was to make the hanger bearing non-serviceable

    Also if you are 4x4. Could be front drive axles. Or rear axles since '07 is IRS..

    Good point Eddie, from wheel bearings can make a God-awful vibration.
