I've got a very loud vibration 60-70 mph. Everythings tight. No missing wheel weights. The rear driveshaft has a deep spiral on the rear 2/3. Where do I take it/ ship it. Are there any other things to consider?

Find a good local driveshaft shop to give it a look.

I know some of the guys no of some down in denver (Morgan) I have always used tom woods (when he was at six states), haven't had the need for a long time but he does great work and if your shipping anyway he's in Ogden, Utah

I use rocky mountain driveline, on brighton blvd. I think a well know shop in Golden does too. When you call, ask for the driveline shop. usually same day service.

Took my driveshaft to rocky mtn driveline. Retubed(.120), new rear u-joint. Good as new. Replaced my tail light. Knocked out rear quarter panel. Reinstalled rear bumper. SO total cost of Chinamans Gulch run was a little more than I'd expected. But I think I got my 40 sold. That should almost cover the recent mods to the 100. Wife says I can get a Slee rear bumper when second morgage is paid off (20k) ouch..

I've used Rocky Mountain, and now Englewood. There's really nothing wrong with Rocky Mt, good guys. But Englewood was more thorough, put on a better spline cap (without my asking) and explained why it was better - and they have more spline options including a Toyota-mimicking sealed spline, only longer travel. I think I would now only use Englewood! They are a bit hard to find is the only downside.
