Re: Runout of Axle shafts on 1947 Custom Super

I can not answer your question about the runout of the axle shafts; although, if violent means were used to remove the drums damage could have been done to the ends of the axles. Someone here will have an answer for you on this.
I doubt the axles are causing the vibration you describe. While the wheels and tires may be in balance, the tires could be out-of-round. No amount of balancing will offset the bouncing of a tire that is not true.
The damaged drums could be causing the vibration and replacing them with sound ones is a good plan.
Depending on what you find with the axle runout, now would be a good time to service the axle bearings and seals. This is an often overlooked maintenance.
