Ensure your driveshaft assembly is in top shape to perform with the reliability you need to get through the toughest winter conditions:

  1. Inspect the driveshaft:
    • Check for any damage to the tube and weld yokes.
    • Examine the integrity of the welds in the driveshaft assembly.
    • Ensure hanger bearings and u-joints do not have excessive play.

    Recommended Upgrade: Install a one-piece 5" aluminum driveshaft built with Sonnax components to achieve superior strength and dependability. Available in u-joint series 1350, 1410, 1480, 1485 and 1550.

  2. Examine the U-Joints:
    • Check for wear at the u-joints and journal seal.
    • Confirm all bearing retainer clips are installed correctly.
  3. Examine the slip yoke:
    • 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.
