Very true. If the ends are in straight.. a "good" driveline guy can straighten the driveline. You just need to know what your doing with the heat. All the weights need to be knocked off and start over.
If you ever get a "newly' balanced shaft that has 2 or more weights next to each other that go around the shaft... I would ask them to double check it. That is a NO NO and I see it quite often.
