Vibration on '84 300D Turbo

I have this vibration comimg from driveshaft ( i guess) especily during acceleration... it feels like that rear tires are almost skipping on the ground....
I have replaced the center support for the driveshaft as the rubber was worn out.. I put new rubber piece and new bearing and I made sure that I put the shaft the same way it came out (if i missed it could have been only by maybe 1-2 degrees). Both Flex Disks looked fine no visible crack or signs of vearing out.
Does anyone know where else I need to look and what to check on? Any suggestionSwhere the vibration myabe comming from? Also at the higher speeds (aroung 60-70 MPH) you can hear a humming sound coming from, what seems like, under the car (but not sure from where).

well, you covered most of what I would have suggested to chk. One thing you said that may be a factor is the feeling of "skipping" tires. This usually is an indication that shocks are bad. Further eveidenced by cupping of the rubber especially if its been bad for a while. Cupping means signs of flat surfaces on the tread.
the sooner you start... the sooner you'll get done If it ain't broke, don't fix it.. Its always simpler to tell the truth...
