When you say it is a one piece drive shaft I assume that means you could not
have re-assembled the U joints out of phase. i.e., it is *not* possible the
yokes are *not* aligned at 90 degrees to each other. No sliding joint
between the ends of the driveshaft?
If something got messed up on the rear U joint by grit or over tightening, I
think you could check by un-doing the front joint and moving the driveshaft
up & down and side to side. Methinks you'd be able to feel binding or
grinding if something wasn't right.
Or, you could wait for more knowledgeable folks to reply...
