had a vibration at my feet at around 2000 rpm, ended up being the gasket for the split in the exaust manifold. Now why does everyone assume a vibration always comes from the driveshaft???????

tyres, auto trans, harmonic balancer, wheel alignment, worn universal joints but rarely an unbalanced shaft unless its been abused.
