325is driftshaft problams

alright. so this might sound dumb, but i cant figure out whats happening!! i replaced the clutch a few months ago and tightened everything down putting the drive shaft together. and anyways so now when i shift (not really slow and smooth, but not dumping or anything) and when i'm at slight throttle i get a thud / extra vibration noise. and when i replaced the clutch i also replaced the guibo and the center bearing. so December sometime i got under the car again and saw that the drive shaft was loose in the middle. so i tightened the coupler (if thats what you want to call it) and i did this again about a month ago. BUT i am still having the same problem....so anything thoughts ? so there a way to pull the drive shaft together more and then tighten or what ??
