    Which yoke is hot the one at the transmission or the rear end. The vibration could be in the rear end. Don't take it for sure just a thought.

    Yes that area is probably going to be hot like 69hemibeep said. When you put the universal bearings in did you keep every thing the same. I always mark the yoke's to make sure they go back the way they came off. It might not make a difference but that is what I do. Good luck finding the vibration they can be hard to locate. :thumbsup:

    So where do you feel the vibration when your driving. May be a bad tire or wheel bearing. Just asking. Also do you here a sound of some sort. Do you have manual or auto transmission. Russ.

    Check the trans mount and also get ahold of both yokes and shack them to see if you have any play

    I would also check motor mount's. Might not be broken but has wear on it. Like Bob say's transmission hanger also. :kartman: It is always something.
