I have only read of problems when re-using an old propshaft. A new one should be perfect.

Are the u/j's correctly phased to each other?

On that note: are your cv's correctly phased/"clocked" or even individually assembled correctly?

What's the history on the propshaft?

I had vibration with a supposedly rebuilt shaft. In the end I dismantled the the spigot shaft and bushes behind the rubber donut and found it had not been touched. A good clean, some oil lubrication and reassembly 180* rotated solved the issue. Might be worth a check, even on a 'new' shaft?
