    anybody seen or heard of it? I,m still chasing a driveline vibration,and am getting frustrated. I've rebuilt the tranny, changed tranny and engine mounts,put in new 14 bolt,rims/tires balanced,new 1350cv HAD rear driveshaft( which made vibration worse).new wheel bearings ,hubs/rotors.It didn't start doing this until after I converted from an auto to a manual.new shaft in tranny and new bearings in tranny and transfer case. Anything I've missed? Any help is appreciated,thanks.

    Just a thought - Is your pilot bushing/bearing in good shape. It is possible that your input shaft is wobbling and your disc is clamped in an out of round/balance position and it is beating the driveline to death .
    Like I said just a thought ??? You seem to have looked at all the usual stuff.
    Good luck , Tom

    I've had the tranny guy tear it apart twice. I don't know. I'm thinking about taking my new HAD driveshaft to a local driveshaft shop to double check the balance. You know how UPS is.,when I recieved it the box was destroyed. CEnterforce 2 clutch, pilot and bushing,resurfaced 168 flywheel,12' clutch,transfer case rebuilt( existing shaft)

    But what about the pilot bearing in the crank shaft ? Did you put one in when you swapped out the auto tranny for the manual one ?

    Sorry , I just re-read your response and you stated that you did do the pilot bushing.

    As has been said, need to have a pilot bearing in the end of the crank and also did you readjust your driveline angle after installing the CV shaft? With a CV shaft the rear diff yoke needs to be pointing inline with the driveshaft if not you will get a bad vibe.

    yeah , the rear pinion is pointed up toward the transfer case (set 2 degrees below for axle wrap). The guy that worked on my tranny owns NORCAL transmissions in Santa Rosa and specializes in 4x4s.. He runs the same set-up in his truck ,so I'm pretty sure he did it right.
