Thanks mate! I definitely did. Didn't seem to be much movement if any which worried me even more. I have a new diff assembly on the way (second hander) with a 12 month warranty. Hopefully this will sort my XJ out quite well. Hope the LSD works still too. If not a rebuild on a traclok isn't that hard is it?

Okay so still getting some wobble... My seats shake, my floor does too... At set speeds all of it. Do I need to check for play in the front end? My unis on the driveshaft seem fine, no odd movement. Can the front driveshaft cause vibes?

Default vibs

take the front drive shaft out and drive it, easy test to see if its the problem.
Also when testing for play in drive shaft uni's don't rely on using your hand to turn it back and forth, stick a big screwdriver in between the uni and get some leverage on it. I've been caught out where the unis were so dry and worn in position you couldn't feel the play by hand, 2 weeks later it dropped one end of the driveshaft from a collapsed uni ( was on a yard forklift that always worked in dirt yard).

Cheers guys, appreciate it. I am leaning towards shafts... Will remove the front one ASAP and see what difference it makes. Also, is this pinion angle incorrect?
