This is not a recommendation not to do the rolling thing. But, when I did mine a few weeks ago I had the Car on Ramps in the Front and Blocks under the Back Wheels. The Ramps kept me from rooling the Car.

I tightened up the Coupling Nut and did not roll the Car. I figured If any problem showed up I would go back and loosen the Coupling Nut an Roll the Car.

Part of the reason for not rolling the Car was my Wrench is a over 2.5 foot long combination Wrench; no room to tighten or loosen anything while the Car sits on the Wheels and I was in a big hurry to test drive the Car because I had also changed the B2 Piston and wanted to know if that part of the job worked.

So as it turned out I am having no issues with the Driveshaft or vibration and will leave it alone for now.
