Shop in SE MI to check D-shaft balance??

I just finished a build and have what feels like a driveline vibration.

Jeep has new shafts that were built by Tatton in UT.

I have gone through the process to confirm angles, etc....

Looking for someone local who can spin the front shaft and determine if it is out.

Spoke to B&L today and they want $65 to look at it.......seems really steep.

Anyone have a local contact that could check it out.

All I am looking for is someone to confirm if it is a balance issue vs. something structural...............I'll be taking it up with Tatton from there regarding next steps.

Thanks for your help.

I had mine done at Shaftmaster in Lincoln Park.

I'm sure others on here will agree that they do awesome work.

drill hole, add trans fluid, weld hole shut, grind smooth. Seriously, this is what I did with mine. You can watch it spin all wobbley like, but going down the road no vibes.
