Drive Shaft

I just replaced the transfer case in my 2005 sport, after putting everything back in I started out on the test run and didnt make it far due to the fact it seems my drive shaft could be bent? or could it possibly need to be balanced after having taken it out?

Well, what's it doing to make you think it's bent?

This! Are you getting vibrations? Seems more likely an issue with your new TC. Just taking a driveshaft out and putting it back in again shouldn't change balance unless you knocked weights off it.

If you dropped it or threw it around it could need balancing. Or if you have a ldss style and pulled it apart and put it back together wrong then its gonna need to be put back to it's original phase

Thanks. Well when I started to drive it I could feel it under the floor and hear it. SO I drove pretty slow down the road while my dad crawled/hopped along beside looking underneath and he said as it rotated it looked like it may be bent.
