    So replacing the axles did get rid of some of the vibration I was having but there are still issues. I am taking it in for round 2. I will update if I get any resolution.

    I'm curious if anyone has had flanges measured for runout?

    I know a lot of the 2nd genners are using the Tom Woods driveshaft to solve their issues, gets rid of the spongy carrier bearing. Have you ever seen the carrier bearing in action? One guy mounted his phone or a go pro aimed at the carrier bearing, it was unbeliveable how much movement there was there. Hopefully it works for you...

    I had a driveline guy take look at everything yesterday. The TW driveshaft seems to be heavy. The critical speed vibrations for a steel one-piece driveshaft might also be worse than the two piece. In California, freeway speed is like 80-85mph so I'm pretty sure I'll get some bad freeway vibes. Alternative would be a custom driveshaft out of aluminum or carbon, but the diameter would need to be larger and it it would come in contact with the carrier bearing bracket.

    I've read about a two-piece with a CV joint being effective against vibrations, perhaps that's the way to go for some of us?

    I’m socal area as well and I’ll probably be getting a TW shaft in the next month... manual transmission and I do get driveline vibes at 20mph but I’m hoping it’ll also fix a takeoff shudder problem.

    also... can you drag elbow :cool:

    Mine ended up having a problem with rear differential. After they fixed it I now have no vibration. So mine ended up having 2 things contributing to the vibration axles and rear diff. I have read on these forums about the vibration from the differential coming back after 1000 miles or so, I will report back if vibration returns.
