TRANNY HELP PLEASE!!!!

OK,
Yesterday I dropped my belly pan on my '89 YJ to replace the Tranny mount. The old one practically crumbled in my fist. While doing this, we accidentally let the rear drive shaft slip out of its tube. We simply put it back together while jacking the tranny up and put everything back together with a new tranny mount. Here's the problem...My tranny used to be a little noisy, but since then, it has been a lot noisy. Where and how do I check fluids and so forth? Any help or suggestions are VERY appreciated. Sorry for the long post.

I believe the filler/check plug id up front passenger side. Good luck I hope it's the fluid. I'm changing my transmission this weekend.

The drive shaft could be un-balanced. I had a similar problem with datsun 510 (OK it was 20 years ago) after I changed the transmission. I put the drive shaft back turned 180 degrees from how I took it off. I got a terrible shake in in the drive train. I took it to a guy who balances drive shafts and he diagnosed the problem and fixed it in just a few minutes.

the driveshaft actually is from the back of the transfer case....there's a plug on the back of the case for draining and filling.....a chilton's manual would help here.
