yes but why would you need them? They make balancers for your coach wheels and my coach has them on each wheel.

Your driveshaft was balanced and there was no vibration before you had the tranny changed was there? Are they now telling you its not there problem with the vibration?

Tom,
I am just researching drive shaft vibration causes and stumbled across this product. I thought it might be useful if someone had a need for it. It's not very expensive either.

Monday I will talk to them and see where they are with my problem. Remember, the shop that has it now is not the shop that messed it up. The rebuilder is not responsable for the installing shops faults.

There is a shop not far from my home that does drive shaft balancing if that is needed, although it should not.

Hello? Are the u-joints phazed right???? Other than losing a weight, that's all that could change in a trans replacement. Unless of course the 'techs' dropped a section and dented it big time. Sure am glad I can do my own stuff.

Mike,
Phasing is on top of the list for them to check. Also rotate the front shaft 180 degrees at the joint between the two shafts. As long as they are swapping the trans those two things should not incur any serious cost. If those two things are done and it still has problems I will bring it home and do the rest myself. I can drop the shaft and center bearing and take it in to have it balanced/straightened. I don't want to fight a big bill for hours of amateur troubleshooting.
