I'd say that center support bearing is bad. This may be the reason why your driveline angle was wrong.

I don't understand why they would add shims to the transmission mount. In a two piece driveshaft design, the "front" shaft doesn't move. It supposed to stay stationary....it's the rear shaft that travels with the suspension. I bet they added shims to compensate for a bad center bearing....you may have to remove these shims once you replace the center bearing. Besides adding shims to the trans. mount affects the angle at which the engine sits as well, which could cause undue stress on the motor mounts amongst other components.

The only way I've ever heard of adjusting the driveshaft angle is to shim the rear axle, which raises or lowers the rear diff.
