So what your saying is , it wasn't actually seated in the yoke right ? and now it is ?

I noticed when I had mine with both sides up,in front and spun the wheel, other side spun other way, there was clicking.
I don't think that's any thing to worry about.

Yeah, basically it wasn't seated properly. Here is a good illustration:



The distance E in the yoke between the tabs is ~0.5mm larger than the distance between the u-joint cap ends. This time I squeezed the caps together before tightening the straps.

Yep, always got to get it between those tabs, or it's not right.
Did you test drive it ??

Took it for a test drive. Basically no improvement. I'm running out of ideas. I'll install a new driver's side motor mount next.
