Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
HelloCustomer and welcome to Just Answer, it sounds pretty straight forward. If you had not properly re-assembled the rear yoke you would likely experience a clunking on and off of accelleration as the torque affects rear pinion preload. How many miles are on the Trailblazer? Usually I would not expect excess wear on the yoke without miles to justify it. I am going to send the removal and installation instructions. Just to put your mind at ease, I would suggest checking the pre-load as described in these instructions. If it is too tight, you need to replace the crush ring. If it is okay I would look closely at the yoke for wear as it is the actual sealing area. Hope this will help. Please let me know if you need further info. Steve T.
