Driveline vibration after lubing slip joint

I dropped the rear drive shaft on Monday to lube the slip joint. No problems there. Re-installed the u-joint in the same location on the yoke and now I have a vibration around 65 mph and up. Nothing below 65. Is there some alignment on these joints? When I put it back together it didn't seem like there was any side to side movement.

I had to remove the drive shaft by unbolting the u joints on each end. Then removed the steel band on the rubber boot allowing the shaft to slide apartment packed the splines with grease and reassembled. I used a large wire tie to replace the steel band.
