Rear Driveshaft ?

When removing the rear driveshaft after you remove the straps and the bolts for the ujoint is the drive shaft just supposed to pull out? There is a big dampener looking thing right by the transfer case. Does that stay there or come off? Any help would be good. I have a vibration and I have narrowed it down to the rear driveshaft I think but I can't get it out.

Well....On my jeep my drive shaft looks like this.




And yes. Just remove the bolts for the straps and the drive shaft will just fall out. Be carefull not to lose the caps on your u joints. I put tape over them when I take it in to have them rebuilt.

The black boot on the transfercase side stays in place. If you take off the metal clip going around the boot, you should be able to pull the drive shaft straight out.

What is the purpose of that dampener?? Also how would you know if it was no good? How does the dampener come off?

I don't know if they go bad really. So I wouldn't know how to know if it's bad or not. But to get mine off I removed the drive shaft and then used a gear puller to yank it off. It's already off in the picture below but it shows how I did it.

From the FSM:

REMOVAL
(1) Shift the transmission and transfer case into
Neutral.
(2) Hoist and support vehicle on safety stands.
(3) Scribe alignment marks at the pinion shaft and
at each end of the propeller shaft. These marks will
be used for installation reference.
(4) Remove the U-joint strap bolts at the pinion
shaft yoke.
(5) Pry open clamp holding the dust boot to propeller
shaft yoke (Fig. 15).
(6) Slide the slip yoke off of the transmission/
transfer case output

That dampner confused me a bit as I wasn't expecting it, because some rigs don't have it..I just rented a puller and yanked it off.
