Then i have to see why that yoke nut because lose, and figure out where the hell to get a new one (pretty sure they're not reusable, but not sure), and figure out how hell to get it torqued to 180ft lbs without an impact gun. yayyyy!
Get yourself a nice 200 ft lb torque wrench, a pipe that'll slide over it and a friend to help. Easy peasy.

Skylar what did you do to keep the yoke/output shaft from spinning? Keep it in gear? Blocks of wood Wedged against the yoke?

Red loctite is your friend, will keep it from working loose. J E reel in Pomona can supply yokes, spicer U joints and centering ball. You grease the centering ball with a grease needle. Loosen the shaft from the rear yoke and you can get at the grease fitting for the centering ball

200 ft lbs is nothing, try crushing the crush sleeve on the pinion of a 14 bolt axle, my big 1100 ft/lbs max torque impact wrench looked at it and quivered. Had to do it the hard way was sore for weeks after

driveshaft is all back together. feels much better and makes no noise so far.. i'll work on getting that yoke nut torqued down tomorrow, then we'll see how it rides.

Art, how would you go about torquing the nut without an impact? If i put it in gear and let the engine/tranny hold the yoke still, will that damage anything internally when i'm cranking on it?

When I did my SYE I had to put the jeep in 4 low to keep the yoke from spinning.

I went off a writeup online. I think Stu Olsens site... Maybe 4x4xplor. One if the two, but it Said put in gear, which worked for me.

And zombie... I saw your street queen twin today.... I'll post a pic in a sec
