Finally got the driveshaft back. The weights were removed and there are different ones mounted in new locations now. This leads me to believe that the shaft did not get rebalanced after it was...

It is expensive, but finding a local shop to do a 9K RPM balance like DSS is supposed to do would be a harder task.

Well.... sending it back to be put on the balancer, AGAIN, is the answer. Paying shipping, AGAIN, is left to me. This driveshaft is quickly becoming very expensive and I am very disappointed with how...

So I had a chance to get the shaft rotated 180 degrees on the diff side and the vibration has all but disappeared. This tells me the balance of the shaft is off. I seriously wonder if it was not...

I don't think that you can use the solid flanges with the stock shaft. The rear flange on the DSS shaft is four bolt and stock is three and the rubber coupler is much thinner.
