front drive line issues

A couple of week ago I was hearing a squeel coming from my front drive line. It went away and a few days ago it came back. Well I took off the front drive line and found some bad u joints and a bad cv joint. I took my drive shaft to florida power train and they replaced all the all of the above. I installed my drive line yesterday and today I notice a decent vibe. With the front drive line installed there is a vibe take it off the jeep ride smooth as ice. Any idea what this could be?

check to make sure the u-joint is not binding up. Front driveshaft could also be bent or out of balance.

Have you tried it both ways on the yoke? If not try flipping it 180* on the pinion yoke.

The rear of the drive shaft has a cv joint in the rear of the shaft. The center was extremly dry.
