    Did it vibe after replacing shaft , or just show up ? Check to see if the weight tacked to it came off . Check everything for tightness like the u-bolts etc , including the pinion nut , if thats loose it will vibe. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Is it a CV style shaft or regular 2 joint shaft? What was done when it was "rebuilt"?

    OK , now did it vibrate before it was rebuilt and you changed the pinion yoke ? Did you double check everything ? You could take a picture and post it here so we can see the driveshaft angle . Maybe they didn't build the shaft right . Take it back and ask if they would check it , shouldn't cost anything at "most" shops to have them check their work /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
