I would think the unit bearing may not be as bad to have play but after sitting the bearings had time to pit and are damaged . I agree on while lifted they wouldnt make noise as the werent supporting any weight .   That vibration thing sounds bad . Id pull the DS and take her for a spin. See if they did their job. Usually a bent shaft get re-tubed not straightened. Then there is always did the balance it after they were done. Gotta start some where , its free and easy.     FjR68
The drive shaft was completely rebuilt and balanced.
While I’m working on the wheel bearings I will disconnect the shaft to see what happens. I did go from stock gearing to 4.88 gears. I put in a new ultimate Dana spicer 44. I’m wondering if something in the new axle is not correct.

Turn up the radio and enjoy the vibes!

Its a Jeep, not a Corvette. :mrgreen:
I’ve been doing that lol!
 I figured since I’m taking it apart maybe I can find what’s causing it. More worried about somthing prematurely wearing out, due to the vibes.
