Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 5 months ago.

Whom balanced the drive shaft?

Did you have to send it out and have them ship it back or did you find a driveshaft shop locally?

Were you able to watch them balance it?

If not, do you see any new weights welded on the drive shaft?
