Pull the front shaft and see if it goes away, else its something else. Easiest way is to just unbolt it at the diff and type it up somewhere. Make sure you stay in 2WD.

You might have a bad shock. The shocks on the Heep are adjustable, when I set them too soft I get a minor vibe in the back at speed. But once stiffened up, the vibe goes away.

did you lift the truck? Lifting would change the pinion angle and sometimes that cause funny vibrations/noises from the drive shaft.

What about a bad inner axle bearing in the rear diff? My guess is that something in the rear end is going down. Bearing, gear, etc.

OMG! I have a 1995 Chevy Cheyenne 4X4 and found the carrier bearing bad. It is in the driveline.

You have a Metro too! LOL

yeah haha thats pretty rare, well i took the truck in and they said it was a common problem with chevy in the driveshaft, said there was nothing they could do about it unless i wanted to buy a new one, and it wouldnt hurt it to drive it that way, wish i had a 98 metro instead of a 93 though haha
