Yea, maybe a little guilty of this in the past ,if not always intentional. I have a very light back end on the car making traction intermittent lol.
Pinion doesn't appear to have any play, so that's good to know.

i know you say that the u-joints are tight but I swear from the video it looks like that top cap is walking back and forth. The best way I know is to get a BFS and wedge it between the joint and the end of the shaft loops to see if there is play.

Agree that not near enough pressure was applied to get stuff wiggling around.
Personally, I'd change them no matter what. For $30 it's worth the trouble.

Yep, make sure they are tight. Mine were loose and popped out at about 85 MPH. Cost me almost 3k, because it broke my Transmission in half...

It pays to do a shakedown run after installing tranny LOL!

I wouldn't change them unless bad... you might be changing out high quality USA U-joints for cheap low quality Asian ones that won't last, wear out quick, even break...
