I have been noticing vibes coming from the driveshaft.

Before I noticed any vibes I wasn't sure whether I should get a pair of shims to install under the leafs to adjust the pinion angle or not so I went to a local shop here in Logan, UT. They told me that it looked fine and that I most likely didn't need any. I measured the pinion angle and it was around 7 degrees off. After doing some reading and since I had a dual cardan SYE I needed it to be closer to zero.

I started to notice vibes. The vibes were not horrible but they were vibes none the less. Even a little vibe can cause problems down the road with quicker wear and premature breakage of parts. I got a pair of 4 degree shims and installed them and now the vibes are completely gone. I haven't driven on the freeway yet so hopefully I don't feel vibes at that speed either.
