Help! broken drivetrain

I have blown two u-joints from this. Also the rear shaft cover on my transfercase has broken twice. When go 40 mph and let off the gas, my jeep would vibrate. But when I give it gas at higher speeds it smoothes out.

What the heck could cause this. After the first time I thought it was the u joint but now i know it isn't.

The yoke and shaft are fine. There is no visible damage on either and the shaft dosen't have play in it. I have jacked up the rear and tested the rear. It spins fine with no problems.

I have to drive to school tommorow.

It's a 95 with a NP231.

Re: Help! broken drivetrain

Is it lifted? If so, how much? Are the operating angles the same? Have you jacked up the frame and let the axle droop some to see if the driveshaft is binding?

Re: Help! broken drivetrain

No lift. Hasn't been off pavement in a while due to it's problems.

I talked to a transmission guy and he thought it was a bent shaft in the case. Pulled it off and sure enough it was. As I type, the t-case shop is adapting the new one for my jeep. 250 bucks for a used one.

Thanks for the help.
