I did the same thing an I marked the shaft but didn't put it back in the same position, I dont have that problem though... Did you change the u joints? An are you sure your pressure plate is on correctly? Bc if it not it could be engaging on part of it, does it vibrate when coasting an the clutch is fully engaged?

I ment to say is your clutch disk on correctly* centered with the pressure plate*

Did you change the flywheel? Or have it resurfaced? If I had to guess it's that or the I joints... For the price an labor I'd do the joints first...

You always have to put it back in the same position or it is likely to vibrate.
Driveshafts are phased from the factory to prevent vibrations.


Always, resurface your flywheel if you reuse it to ensure it is flat and to remove any glazing on the surface, otherwise your clutch may chatter and vibrate when engaging it and your new clutch will not last as long.
