Default vibration at highway speed

Hey guys just looking for some opinions... 07 ranger sport 3.0 just had new u-joints put on about a week ago and I'm still getting a slight but noticeable vibration at around 45 to 70 mph...I'm going too go get the tires rotated and have then checked for balance, anyone have a good idea what might be going on?

Get you rear wheels balanced and checked for bent rims.

Or you could move the 2 rear tires to the front and see if the vibration moves to the steering wheel.

Also, look at the tires and see if the weights fell off.

95% of the time a consistent vibration from the steering wheel or seat is because of the tires or wheels. There was a poster here with a rear bearing issue but his truck is 17 years old.
