Hi, from your description it sounds like you have a wheel bearing problem in the rear of the car. It is common to have one or both wheel bearings fail causing a whirring type noise like the one you are hearing.

You don't install a new driveshaft

You have new joints installed and have it
checked for being straight, and have it balanced

No dealer will do that

did you mark the two ends of the shaft at gearbox and diff
so they lined up again
with the center bearing replacement
did you mark the two halves before separating and replacing the center bearing
then make sure they lined up again

if vibration is there
you may need to go to a diff shop and have the drive shaft balanced properly

Check the u-joints in the drive shaft for looseness or rust streaks. The speed makes it well above harmonic vibrations normally occur. Check rear engine mount for condition and if the rubber is soft it may pay to replace it. The jaguar car rear end uses the two axles as upper control arms and so it may be necessary to check the u- joints here as they carry a lot of load holding the wheels upright while driving the car. It may pay to find a jaguar. specialist workshop because the drive train and rear end are not the same as most other cars and general mechanics will have little specific knowledge to diagnose the problem correctly

Ford 2001 econoline rear axle oil leak at drive shaft seal; how to repair/replace seal ?

if it is leaking from the front of the diff where the drive line goes into it you have to drop the rear of the drive shaft from the diff, if you look at the flange on the diff where the driveshaft bolted to you will see a nut, possibly about 25 to 30mm, you have to remove the nut and remove the flange off the spline of the input shaft of the diff, the nut is really tight and it is difficult to get enough pressure on the nut to "crack it" while the car is on the ground as there is not enough room to get a long bar on the socket to remove the nut. if you happen to get the nut loose and you remove the flange get a big screwdriver and pry the seal out of the diff, check the surface where the seal ran on the input shaft as it may have a groove worn into it, if it has the groove the new seal will still leak, they make a sleeve you can slide over the shaft to give the seal a good surface to run on, we call them a speedy sleeve here but not sure what they may call them there. replace everything in the reverse order that you removed it and don't forget to tension the big nut that holds the flange onto the input shaft

Transmission clonks into drive ocassionally

I would check the universal joints front and rear on the drive shaft first. They are " greased for life " what usaully happens is the grease gets washed away and the needle bearings in the caps wear and become sloppy causing a clunk when the car goes into gear. If its front wheel drive I would suspect a bad cv joint.
