Re: 1-Piece DShaft... Worth It?
Replaced the U-Joints as per my work (AutoZone... sigh) said. They were the exact same size as was in there.
But. They were wrong. Looks like the PO put the wrong ones in, which started the issue. We finished the issue.
It has a carrier bearing. It's in good shape.
So now it wallowed out the yoke. Shaft seems alright, but the yoke is buggered.
I asked about twisting that long of a shaft as well. They said it shouldn't be an issue if built right?
Have a new yoke and 3 new CORRECT U-joints coming in. Want to know if it's worth the 1-piece before we put the new u-joints in though.
The incorrect u-joints I'm sure added to the wobble issue. But still, I want to know if it might be a good idea. Messing with that annoying bearing stinks. Not to mention the 310ft/lb torque spec on the nut... I had to buy a new torque wrench and socket set >.<
