Small vibration.

I get a little vibration when taking off from a dead stop. Hard to explain, only at slow speed under a slight load. I saw something about greasing splines on the driveshaft?? Could that be it? Got a link? Thanks.

Do you know for sure that it is coming from the drive shaft?

My u joints finally went out. I was getting vibration under light foot pedal, and I was also getting a squeaking when backing up (didnt think much of the squeaking). When I took my driveshaft to the shop, he asked me about any noice backing up, and said that was a sign (I never mentioned it to him before that).

Usually its either a U-joint going out or a carrier bearing spacer problem which I don't think you have? So it's probably a u-joint. Take a bar and run up between it and twist it back and forth and look for any side to side play between the driveshaft and yoke.
