well as topic describes my car is off the road again

A while back i was getting vibrations on the freeway at about 110-120km/h but only when backing off not accelerating, the last owner replaced the clutch so i figured he stuffed up somewhere here, checked it out found when i removed and turned the tailshaft 180' and re bolted it fixed the vibrations completely,
But.... yesterday they came back but now from around 60km/h onwards and they are much worse and seem to be getting worse everytime i driver her.
anyone had this happen before?
anyway any ideas or help would be much appreciated cheers :) :)

what you could do is RETIGHTEN the bolts that hold the tailshaft to diff again , ive seen and heard this to many times ,
so it would pay to double check the tailshaft bolts
