Frank, can I swing by tonight?
Pete, since I'm on a non-stop shift it may be 7:00pm at the earliest this week.
Thanks.

I believe that the shaft lengths are different between the auto and stick.

Mark just left the shop, I pulled the DS from the axle and safety wired it to the frame to see if the vibration will be eliminated.

Update: It wasn't until the next morning that I was able to get a feel for how the Jeep would handle and sound. The major vibrations were gone though there was minor vibrations. There still is a ticking sound, faint though. Also a sound reminiscent of the wash cycle in a washing machine. Whooshee whooshee, etc. The Jeep needs to be driven by someone with a trained ear. But accelerating without shaking is by far the best feeling. Looking at the needle on the speedometer inch over 60mph with no vibration was great!
