Oh wow!

Sorry to hear about the rear vibration. If you feel the need to involve a GM certified dealership, please let me know. I'd be more than happy to set up an official diagnosis for you.

Re-check the torque on the driveshaft connections. Also check the fluid level in the differential.

What exactly do you mean by swapped out? I agree with Johnny B as good things to check but if you were just inside installing gears could be a lot of things

Just check the fluid level. I know some say to drive a bunch of figure 8's after changing diff fluid.

That was the problem on my car as well. I snapped them off at the race track. Getting my drive shaft on Monday. It would be nice to finally drive my car pass 75 without vibration.

I didnt realize that I needed to change my rear diff fluid.I have 36000 miles and havent changed it once yet.I do have a little bit more vibration sounds like that might do the trick.
