    simple driveshaft question

    i installed a DS safety loop about a month ago and had the foresight to mark and shaft and differential. only problem is when i went to install, the marks i made were rubbed off so i might have it flipped. my question is - if it is flipped, how much vibration will i get? i noticed a slight vibration today (i really dont drive the car much) when i drive 70+ mph and higher. at first i thought it was maybe a wheel became off balance, then i remembered the DS.

    You can't flip the driveshaft.

    oh sorry, not flip diff and trans sides but rather where its bolted to the pinion gear. im wondering if that slight vibration is from me having it rotated 180 degrees from where it was originally bolted.

    My first guess would be tire rotation/wheel balance. A drivetrain/rear end shop should be able to balance your driveshaft for around $50-70, if you want the extra piece of mind.
