Got your email Matt. We need more information. What exactly is happening with the rear u-joint? Obviously it is coming apart, does it leave the bearing cup or cups in the axle yoke? Do you have U-bolts or straps for the yoke? Is it breaking the cross section? Does the driveline lay flat on a floor with it removed and on a flat surface, meaning do the bearing cup ears lay equally flat on the floor or bench or is one end clocked off or up from the opposite end?
When it comes apart and you get out, what do you see under there? In detail please.
The correct length when sitting with the rig on flat ground means the slip joint can be compressed and extended roughly the same amount when you take one end off and push and pull to extend and compress it. It should ride with room to move either direction, not extended with no extension to be had. Or compression for that matter.
Am I done yet?
