Re: driveshafts

I don't know why they would be uncomfortable with the centre bearing set-up.
I had a driveshaft from my '79 Chev van balanced at a local shop. This shaft
was a two piece affair with a centre bearing and u-joint. The shop took it
apart, balanced each shaft individually, and re-assembled it. This solved a
driveline shudder I was experiencing under heavy acceleration at 40 - 50
mph. They did a much better job than I did with hose clamps in various
positions, although the hose clamps did prove it was a driveshaft balance
problem :o)
