Well I have a 1990 ford ranger 4x4 and I had a shake from 20-25 MPH and I replaced two rear u joints also I replaced the "center bearing" is What they called it at autozone. You have two shafts behind the tranny and you have one small one behind the tranny and then it goes through the center bearing and then it connects to a second shaft. Make sure the center bearing is in good shape. If not go ahead and purchase a new one. My center bearing was so rusty is shook all over the place. Just make sure that is in good shape. You will have to take the whole shaft out from the tranny to the rear axel but its worth it as long as you know that it is the center bearing
