Default Front-end Vibration

New to the forums but I have searched them and have not found any with the issue I am having. I have a 98 Ram1500 Quad Cab 4wd. This past w/e I personally replaced the front u-joints and the axle hub assemblies to address a very bad clunking clicking sound. It was the u-joints. They were terrible. Everything up front is original and needs some love. There are 125 kilomiles on the truck. The hub assemblies seemed fine but were easy enough to change so what the heck. Now I have a higher pitched vibration that is there as soon as I start rolling but very noticeable above 35 mph. This noise was not there prior to my repairs. It remains if I drop into neutral. It goes away immediately if I shift into 4H but comes back either slowly or immediately after I shift back into 2H. Any ideas? Thx. BTW this was my first time changing u-joints so it is possible I did something wrong. The u-joints were articulating smoothly though in all directions after I put them in.
