Front end help

I just replaced the drivers side hub assembly including the U-joint and appropriate seals. Now there is a vibration when I turn in either direction but it started out vibrating only when turning left. Also it only happens in drive not in reverse.

when you got done doing the axle joint was it free to move around only feeling llike it was new or did it feel like it ws real tight and hard to move, if hard to move possibly have the joint caps too tight when pressing the joi nt back into the axle, caps too tight if the ears the caps go into are not seated properly allowing the joint to move freely, have had this as a problem bafore from beating frozen joints out of axles

The u joints moved freely. I guess it went a way last night and this morning but came back after being on the highway for about 20 minutes or so. That baffles me even more
