Default 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.

it's a bit far from Oxford, but Joint Clutch in Romulus has done all the shafts for the race buggy without a single issue.

They are also a sponsor for our team. Support companies that support local racers and our sport.

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.
