Does the drive shaft need to be in time? on 1995 Chevrolet S10

I replaced tran and diff seals, there was no vibration before the seal replacement. now a noticeable vibration. checked rear u-joint saddle for miss alinement, but is in correct position. Vibration subsides some after 65mph.

If you replaced the pinion seal, did you torque the 'yoke' retainer nut correctly?

It's not a 1 piece shaft...has a slip joint and mount mid way back from trans

Long bed pick up would have been useful info! Bunch of S-10's!!! All u-joints have got to be in line with each other! Did you separate the shafts?

it's not a long bed, but is extended cab and all joints are in line

Same difference!! No other way to "time" a u-joint.

I called a Chev dealership and there service dept said it needs timed...remove rear joint from saddle and turn diff yoke 180 deg
