Vibration, Help please

My sister in law has a 92 bronco XLT and she is starting to get some vibration upon exceleration at various speeds, she had it looked at and they said she needed a new driveshaft, question is do they go bad or is it usually a ujoint problem or possible balance issue? I have searched this site , looking at previous posts and it seems like not to many of these problems reqiure a whole new shaft. Any help would be appreciated.

Probably just the u-joints and maybe even the centering ball in the double cardan. Check out Shilo's Superford page for details on the change out.

When the center joint in my cardan went, it showed up as a thump that turned into a nice vibration as i increased my speed. I actually used Shilo's page as a reference when i changed mine (as well as all 3 ujoints) almost a year ago now and havent had a problem since

Re: Vibration, Help please

She apparently got a second oppinion and they also said it was her driveshaft up front near her transfer case, so i think she is going to buy a used one for like a 100 bucks or something. My brother said it only has 2 u joints ,one in front and one in back, is that normal for a 4 wheel drive? My 96 has 3. 1 up front and 2 in back. And thanks for the responses.
