    The fact that the driveshaft is just one part of the driveline and that the axle(and engine/trans) can move around when the vehicle is being driven is why clocking the driveshaft is a thing. Another very important thing for a smooth driveline is pinion angle and this is adjusted with either adjustable upper control arm(preferable) or adjustable lowers.

    So the 3.73 gears are ordered. Lmr has everything 10% off for fourth of July. Now I just need to schedule the install.

    Finished my goal this week, finished removing front bumper, separated the headlight buckets from stone deflector and cover, removed vacuum canister from passenger side of car, vacuum block, firewall braces and body harness and engine harness. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    The only two I have edited from Mammoth so far... Both have a lot of photoshop in them.... Lake had a large boat on the left side against the dock, and the dog had a person bent over behind it and a building on the left.... lol FX1_8950-Edit by David, on Flickr FX1_8926-Edit_no_building by David, on Flickr

    They cut the cowl and attempted to mate a section from another car instead of replacing the cowl as a unit and the lower portion. Afterward the plastered bondo over it (painted black). So it rotted at the seam as seen in the pic above, unlike the passenger side which is mint for its age. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Yep I see it, ok this will be interesting. So I'm going to drop the ds Wednesday night, drop it off Thursday morning and then have the new one by Thursday afternoon to reinstall. If everything goes to plan my car will only be down for a day.

    Assuming they didn’t totally change the exhaust, there is a slip fitting about 1/3 to 1/2 the way back, you just loosen that and the flange to the mufflers, slide the pipes back and out of the slip fitting and they will hang there giving you room to drop and install the DS.

    Clocking means you have to rotate it to find it’s happy place. By this we mean undo the bolts, and spin the shaft by one bolt hole and retighten. Do this till you get the least vibrations. I have had mine on and off many times without paying attention to clicking, and it’s made no difference. In my head, it’s balanced already. So it theoretically shouldn’t make any difference what orientation it’s installed in. That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if you could remove some minor vibrations via clocking it, but if there was ever a serious vibration I would think there is an actual issue somewhere.

    For a GT reusing the stock-style flanges probably isn't a big deal, not sure about the V6. If I had to pick I'd rather have at least new ones if still stock but look closely at the top brands of aftermarket shafts to see what they use. IIRC they have a u-joint on one end and a CV on the other. Reusing a high-mileage CV joint is never a good idea.

    Wow, that’s a bit ridiculous imo. DS install should theoretically be free... already doing a diff, cars on the lift. It’s like 14 screws, out with the old, in with the new. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
