Brand: Chevy Avalanche rattled by vibration at highway speeds

Q: My 2002 1500 four-wheel-drive Chevy Avalanche with 110,000 miles has a vibration problem that came on rather suddenly. At 55 to 60 miles per hour, a vibration starts and by 65 mph feels and sounds exactly like driving over a rumble strip. I’ve replaced the U-joints on the drive shaft to no avail. If I had to guess, I would say that it seems to be coming from the front passenger side, but the whole vehicle vibrates. Putting the spare tire and wheel on the front passenger side didn’t have an effect. Recent work done at least three months before this problem included replacing the rear end fluid and the driver’s side front wheel-bearing assembly. Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this?
