Having a vibration issue that occurs at 50 mph and over. It feels like a rear tire out of balance as there is no vibration in the steering wheel. The tires and wheels are new and have been re-balanced to make sure the tires and wheels are not the problem. Also, the original wheels and new tires were balanced and still vibration in the seat. I watched the "slip Yoke" service video on YouTube and wondered why this is necessary and if that might fix my issue. Also after Googling my issue I found videos of drive shaft run out.
Do you

Good morning,

I suspect a bad universal joint for an issue like this.

Look for any rust at the cups on the driveshaft. That is an indication of a failed joint.

I would remove the driveshaft to inspect the joints to see if they move freely.

Hello,

This could be a problem with your vehicle's U joints going bad. When they start to fail they will cause your drive-line to wobble and will cause a vibration issue. Here is a link to a guide below explaining what happens when U joints fail and what to look for:

Thanks,
