Reply to sprinkles08's Post: The 4 bolts at the rear u-joint, and the 4 at the front u-joint?

There are 4 bolts on the flange at the rear differential pinion yoke, there are 4 bolts that hold the flange to the pinion yoke at the front differential. All bolts torque to 115 ft lbs.

For the front or rear driveshaft?

Reply to sprinkles08's Post: Rear driveshaft
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 8 years ago.
The rear driveshaft should not bolt to the transfer case on your truck. It should have a slip yoke. The driveshaft should slip out of the transfer case once the rear flange is unbolted from the differential.
