Huge reduction in engine vibration. New tyres cured most of the remaining vibrations. I started that journey with new front and centre propshafts.
May I pse know what a front propshaft costs? And who supplied it? I think I may be cured from making them locally.

Front and centre propshafts built for me by Driveline Technologies in Isando.

I don't remember the prices, but I recall between R3.5k-R5.5k.

Andrew have you tried TriTorq in Cape Town? Riaan had some made up there (he has not tested them yet) and I am waiting for Riaan to test his so that I can send two shafts down to be re-made. ;)
I am also at wit's end with the front, please let us know if you find an OEM supplier and the price please. (for academic purposes of course, since my teeth only allows me to bite locally manufactured bullets...)

I still have a small vibration or hum sound, but it seems to come from the engine mountings maybe, we have done the TC mountings so the engine mounts are all that's left, then everything was touched from front to back. So I will let you know when those are replaced.
