Loose H-Yoke on driveshaft

My rear driveshaft (which is actually an XJ's front driveshaft with CV joint) has an H-yoke. I was replacing the u joints today and found that one of the loops on the H-yoke is so loose I can push in a U-joint cap with my hand...and remove it easily!!!

Could this have been causing my vibration problem??? Also, when replacing the driveshaft, do I need to use new u-joint straps?
