Did you align the driveshaft the way it was prior to removing? If you changed the csb and didn't align it the way it was it is not balanced correctly. Also check your flex disk, it sits on the trans output flange. It gets worn out and cracked after years of driving. If there are cracks on it it will start tearing apart.
