    The drive shaft out of the trans of a Honda has an alignment. If it is not aligned it will vibrate. I do not know the alignment procedure though sorry.

    the 2 yokes on the shaft should be timed
    if you set the shaft on a flat surface the inner two yokes should sit flat and or the outside two should sit flat
    hope you can understand that

    Also, if the yokes are timed and there is still vibration you might try rotating the shaft one spline where it comes out of the tranny. keep the yokes in alignment. Doesn't help or gets worse, try the other way.
