I rang a company called Driveline Services in Queensland and told them about my issues.

They advised me that they use these couplings exclusively on the Tarago (wide body) that is in numbers here and also on the lesser numbers of Estimas.

Never had a complaint or noticed any of the problems like mine. I was told that rotating the shaft won't fix it as they don't worry about the old position when fitting.

They suggested balancing the shaft as I have improved it with my bush balance technique or just go back to the Toyota couplings.

 I have had enough at the moment and have to start a new job next week and study at uni towards a Masters. So I will give it some use. The vibration is only now over about 100 rpm and only noticeable when a/c on at the lights.

well done tony, still haven,t touched mine yet, althou the exhaust is sweet now.
did have a chance of wing, headlight and glow plugs for �50, collect, but weather was bad here and couldn,t collect. Phoned the guy today and he scrapped the car, worth more apparently, he takes things off like diesel pump etc.
So back to the drawing board again. lol

that's a shame Jon. I think the main difference with the sads was i used a better quality one this time. the rubber is stronger than that of the cheaper ones. Which i think is more the reason i had no hassle with rattling noises after.
You get what you pay for i suppose. no more cheap buys for me.

family gone down too Leeds i got to stay here and work. Flying down to London on Monday to catch up with them.
piece and quiet.
Spent my day running network cables Upstairs and putting sockets in. tried the old wireless route got fed up with the kids complaining that there internet gone.
