Thanks guys, I bought the whole shaft and coupler (rebuilt) for $59 already assembled - It's about 3 feet long most it being the shaft going into the axel housing from the coupler, does that sound right? I was expecting a shorter shaft to mate with another shaft in the housing for some reason - this is a 99 with the Quadra Drive progressive coupler in the front.
Never mind, I read the link on installation - it looks like the shaft in that set of instructions so I guess its right. Only bummer is I have the calipers and rotors off alreay for the brake work so I have to reassemble probably to brake the axle nut loose - no biggy - looks like a simple job.
fortunately for me (in a wierd way) I just replaced the hub and bearing on my 3/4 GMC truck, and have all the tools to do the job already including torque wrench that goes over 175, 36mm socket, and a LOOOONNNNGGG Breaker bar. There were bolts on it I had to torque to 220 ftlbs.
