: I keep experiencing a vibration in my car while accelerating in 2nd gear from 2-3K or so. I was able to reduce the vibration by replacing the rubber u-joint (guibo) but it hasn't completely gone away. There doesn't seem to be any vibration during steady cruising at any RPM.

Most likely you're experiencing the early stages of driveshaft U-joint failure. There are several advertisers in the Roundel who specialize in remanufactured driveshafts.
