dont get shafted

It seems theres been alot of talk about driveshafts causing vibrations at 60+mph, i think i have this problem, therefore i am leaning towards an aluminum driveshaft to fix this problem, its pricey but what do you guys think?

To me: the driveshaft isn't the CAUSE of the problem. It didn't come out of the factory like that... I know these ain't "factory" zero mile cars, but there has to be an underlying cause. Just my opinion tho man!

I thought they go out of balance over time and with wear. I dont know what else it could be. I got brand new balanced wheels and it definitely isnt the flywheel or anything with the clutch because thats new too lol. I only notice it when I hop on the interstate. I mean the dang dashboard shakes bad man haha

I hear ya. Just speaking from personal experience with different vehicles. U joints? Rotors? Think small man and check it all before diving in. Not saying your diagnosis is wrong or anything.

Have you recently removed it? If you didnt install it in the same orientation then it maybe the issue. Also those bolts need loctite or they will back out. One more trck you maybe able to change the orientation anyways to trouble shoot it. Just mark original placement. If the vibration changes then there is a good chance its your problem.

Check your U'joints while its off to see if they stick, I ended up buying new tires and getting a alignment and I realized a few months later it was a sticky u-joint 14 dollar fix vs 550
