First time poster, long time lurker.

I have a 2006 V8 with 140,000 miles on the clock. A few months ago i noticed a strange rhythmic feeling at about 65 mph. It felt like the engine was misfiring or like the cruise control wouldnt hold speed. However, the cruise control did not have to be on for this to happen. I took it into the shop and of course was told carrier berring was failing. No problem replace it!

Pick the treg up and go camping. She drives like a dream for about a month...

All of a sudden the treg has that rhythmic feeling again only its now down in third gear. With this new rhythmic dance i have a weird sound when accelerating from 2nd to 3rd gear. Before it shifts it sounds like a slight grinding is occurring in the front right of the car. This only happens when i accelerate and dont quite get to third gear. Its almost like the transmission is questioning whether or not it should shift. I also make note that I think its coming from front right. Had a person in the car with me and they heard back left. Is this simply a chassis noise?

The rig is beautiful through 4th, 5th and 6th and I have never had the hard down shift that comes with the "valve body" threads.

It has new ATF, Filter and flush with carrier bearing change out.

Good to hear

I towed my trailer today with it and everything felt great...a couple of weird moments but it was when i was babying it. If I really into throttle i dont have any issues.

How often should plugs and cables be changed out?

Im pretty novice fixing this thing myself, anyway i can check the bearings?
