So I got my tires rotated and balanced today...

Ive been having some vibrations and figured what the heck, they were way out of balance and she now rolls smooth down the road. I still have a shutter around 53 mph, almost feels like the drive shaft. I crawled under and checked the u-joints, their fine, I noticed the splines in the two piece shaft had a lot of play in them, could this cause a shutter? I also have this horrible clunk when taking off from a stop, it also clunks when I let off the brakes after stopping, is this a case of the "you need to grease your slip yoke"?

Another question, can I replace my two piece DS with a one piece?

More than likely. The clunk on take off is why I would think so. That is what mine did and I solved it by greasing the 2 piece.
