VOLVO 960 U JOINT PROBLEM

1995 Volvo 960 • 281 miles

Replaced driveshaft supporting and bearing and the accompanying u joint, did not mark anything. Reinstalled the spline by marks from set screw, went in smoothlly. Does it make any difference how the u joint is installled ie the yoke etc on each side of the u joint end. Can't figure out why there is vibration at 25 or 30 mph, thanks dave

Did you preload the center support bearing? If you just locate the bolts and then tighten them down without moving the center support bracket to preload the bearing, it can vibrate.
