Rear and or drive shaft noises

Well I have a noise in the rear and a vibration when I reach 50 mph. I would like to have some advice on what you guys and or lady's think it could be. The car is a 1991 GT Thank you.

Have you replaced the drive shaft? I had a slightly twisted stock one and it did that. Replaces it with an aluminum one and it went away

It could be the driveshaft is damaged or that your U-joints are worn. A less likely problem is that something is busted in your differential. You may want to check to your differential fluid though.

Another thing you can try is rotating the driveshaft 90° at a time and see if the vibration either goes away or gets better.

Yea try the rotating suggestion first if no luck buy a complete alum one it will help for sure you still need to rotate that one also to get it right.

Pay the extra money and get a drive shaft loop. They are cheap insurance to hurting you or others possibly. That being said my cheap *** needs to buy one
