Well my wife says she felt it again. We got a good 2 weeks out of it. I pulled it from the driver list and it will sit until I have time to take it apart again and go for the fix. I'm going to weld the sleeve to the shaft but we're going to try something a little different. My next door neighbor (1/4 mile away) has the coolest machine shop I've ever seen. They don't do automotive work but he's going to help me out. He said we should machine the splines out of the collar completely and make a sleeve to fit between it and the shaft, bore 2 holes in the collar and sleeve along with an access port in the case for a mig and press fit them to the shaft so the sleeve is concentric with the shaft and then weld the sleeve and shaft together. I'll try to take some pics and document what we do. Not sure when I'll have time to get to it but this should be interesting.
