  1. Inspect the driveshaft:
    • Check for any damage to the tube and weld yokes.
    • Examine the integrity of the welds in the driveshaft assembly.
    • Check u-joints for excessive play.
    • Inspect hanger bearing for any cracks or tears in bushing, and excessive play.

    Recommended Upgrade: Install a one-piece 5" aluminum driveshaft built with Sonnax components to achieve superior strength and dependability.

  2. Examine the slip yoke:
    • Check for wear at the u-joints and journal seal.
    • Confirm all bearing retainer clips are installed correctly.
    • Ensure the internal splines properly engage the output shaft.
    • Inspect the tail shaft's seal and bushing to confirm that there are no contaminants entering the transmission or transfer case which may cause damage.

    Recommended Upgrade: Install Sonnax performance slip yokes to achieve greater strength, a superior seal, exceptional balance, and minimal runout.
