E150 rear end w/rumbling noise and vibration
Hi guys, this is not a F series but it's a Ford.
I have a 02 e150 convertion van with 90k miles, I have been noticing that recently when I go to take a turn on dry pavement, when I applying power, like turning into my driveway or get into another street, I can feel a rumbling noise and vibration in the rear end of the van (it feels like if I were slowly spinning the wheels on pavement). Everything started happening after I went to Ohio to pick up a 24 travel trailer that weighs about 4000 pounds (about 1500 miles round trip), I've never felt it before when towing the trailer for the first time. It gets worst when towing but when I'm going straight I don't feel anything, it only happens in turns, loaded and unloaded. This is not a 4wd vehicle. I check the differential oil level and is fine, the color is amber. I tried to check the u joints but I have no idea on what to look there.
What could be the problem?
