    Thanks!.. too bad that wasn't the problem though.

    Oh well.. need to look into my tranny problem. Looks like I might need to go head and retire my square as a daily driver for now. Need to start looking for a cheap econo-box. Just got a new job too... so, hopefully something kool comes my way..

    Wish me luck fella's!!

    I'll keep you all posted on the latest...

    I need to do this myself. Just curious as to why the new joints would be greased after reinstalling driveshaft. Would it not make more sense to grease them before?

    Thanks!

    You could on the slip yoke end but the grease will just push the loose caps off the diff end and not push into the other two caps so it gets greased after installing.
