Isnt that violent? At least it was in my el camino. Do you have the rear of the car fairly high up? Lowering mine and rebuilding the suspension eliminated it. Or maybe I put control arm relocation brackets on, cant remember. confuse

That's how parts get broken, better fix it.

 I checked the drive line at the pinion and its perfectly in line.  I thought you told me it should be at an angle???  Was that you?  So when under load it will be more straight.  NVM that was something else, maybe high speed vibration.  I have UMI upper and lowers in the rear maybe in need of some adjusting???

 Far as I know, the only thing is 295/60(rear) and 205/60(front) putting the ass in the air.

Get that thing at -3* of pinion angle before you destroy your trans, driveline, rear or trash the body from breakage.

You need to get it up on jacks with suspension supported. Tell us trans angle, driveline angle, and pinion angle. In general, equal and opposite. Lots of forums explain proper driveline angles. Do a search. Just went through this with Chevelle.

My ghetto lift for easy measuring.  Just have to make sure its level and I've always had good results.  Expecting them this time as well.  I just leave the car up on them all the time during the build.  Will even swap the rear end out with it in the air.
