Aluminum Drive shaft Rub

My Drive shaft is rubing on something. There is enough clearance all the way around big enough for my hand. Nothing seems lose. Please help

From your pix, looks fairly obvious to me where it's rubbing. Is your Mustang lowered? Bet it's happening when you hit a pot hole or speed bump.

You could remove the DS, should be able see exactly what it's rubbing against.

Looks like it is rubbing on the floor reinforcement under the tunnel visibible in the second picture.

I know it's too late now, but it appears the smaller diameter aluminum shaft might have been a better choice.
