Measured the driveshaft angles and not as bad as I thought it might be. I could definitely space the center bearing down a little and improve that joint to the rear of the engine, but, I may just move onto other puzzles for now. The car itself, on jack stands, is about 1.0 degrees nose up. Am I correct to think the front section is intended to be level by Volvo? The engine is already very close to the crossmember.

It's possible what I think is driveline vibration is (a) me not being used to it and (b) all new poly bushings in every location and Heim joints for the upper trailing arms and Panhard bar. I installed poly front bushings on the lower arms before the common consensus was lack of articulation was more harm than help.
