Take it back to the installer of the drive shaft and demonstate to them the problem.
The symptons you describe a indicate to me you have a faulty constant velocity drive joint or inadequate grease lubrication in the joint.
If the drive shaft proves to be the problem, it should be replaced with a new unit under warranty.
