Gary, the manual states,to pull or install drive shaft,loosen diff and transmission bolts.I have never done this. I have no decoupler and drive around 11 months a year in 2wd.I did not have any vibrations last year.I do now have a slight vibration between 60 and 65 kays.I am keen to try your suggestions on Monday and will report back.I was going to try the shaft in different positions,as my marks,didnt line up exactly.Could not work that out.
