wierd vibration...

I have an 88 wrangler that is totally stock suspension wise. The problem I have is that there is a vibration from 30 to 40mph.
It is not that bad, but it is irritating me because my driveshaft flew out once and I really don't want it to again. I recently had it
balanced and new u joints installed, and that helped but there is still a slight vibration. It seems like the ujoint doesn't fit into
the yoke on the axle like it should. On my other Jeep the fit was real tight, but on the wrangler there is a little slop side to side
if I don't get it in there just right. I am thinking about changing the yoke to a u-bolt design rather than the strap and bolt that it is
now. What do you think??

Re: wierd vibration...

Driveshaft flew out?

Whoa. Bad. Very bad.

Slop @ u-joint?

Also very bad.

Switching from straps to u-bolts may help a lot. If it doesn't help, pull the driveshaft and take it to a shop to get balanced...
