Vibration - Rear

I felt a vibration driving for a week or so and all of a sudden it increased to the point of shaking the entire jeep. Before I could stop, the rear u-joint sheared in half and the drive shaft was flailing everywhere, knocking off the muffler. I replaced the yoke which was also damaged and reattached the drive shaft. the vibration is back though, in its subtle mode. I'm afraid to drive it without getting it checked out but wanted to see if anyone here had any ideas that might save a mechanic fee.... thanks.

Could be a bent driveshaft, but if it broke the u joint how does the differental feel when turned by hand?

Not sure. Drained the diff, no visible metal shavings. Next step is inspecting all of it.

Do you have a lift? You might need a slip yoke eliminator.
