    Its the driveshaft, I had the same problem with mine. Got a new aluminum driveshaft and it cured all problems. It rides extremely smooth, now if you get the ALM DS you'll get added strength and its aluminum. Can't get better than that.

    Ditto. I had the same problem at one time. Aluminum driveshaft cured it. From what I've heard the factory driveshafts have an internal packing that deteriorates over time and throws it out of balance. Never saw the packing cause I never cut one apart.
