why would a half shaft need balancing? If it is bent, replace it, if the
inner joint is worn(probably the cause) replae it. A shaft will not come
unbalanced unless either the above is present.
I have found out that I have vibration on the front left side of the
vehicle. I raised the car, removed tires, turn the engine on, put in
drive and pressed the gas pedal. When right side axle was rotating
there were no vibrations, but when I checked left side, there were
vibrations. On my old driver side half-shaft there was a balance
weight, but on the "new one" which I put 23.000 miles ago there was no
balance weight. Shaft is not bent, and nothing is loose.
I agree with Glenn. But...
Call around and find a shop that can make custom half shafts (needed
when doing engine or transmission swaps). If anyone can balance them
they can. If it is bent or has a bad CV joint, they should be able to tell.
This is what happens when we try to save a few bucks with brand x parts.
I've learned that doing it right the first time actually costs less.
