try checking your pinion angle, and make sure that your slip yoke is traveling enough to keep the joints at the correct angle

I checked with a driveline balancing specialist and he told me that the aftermarket u-joints are no good, and finding original equipment, [ u-joints ] is almost impossible. I have changed mine out several times and still have vibration. Good luck.
