Vibration in 5th gear between 100 km/and 130 km/h

Can someone please help me. Bought 2007 fortuner one month ago and vehicle has been in for more than 30 days. In 5th gear between 100km/h and 130km/h if i put my foot down vehicle starts to vibrate and stops when I exceed 130km/h. Vehicle only does this in 5th gear. Vehicle did not have this problem until clutch was replaced and flywheel was machined.

It sounds like your universals are shot, they are cheap to replace, its worth while doing, by doing that you can at least eliminate that possibility.

Agreed that it could be the universals, but there are many things that could contribute - one by one - elimination of unbalance flywheel, propshaft (s), gearbox mountings, engine mountings, the yoke ect.

There are many things stripped off when working on the flywheel - if not correctly aligned or damaged during disassembly then this can create endless problems - all steps should be retraced to eliminate all the possibilities.
