    With new t-case, diff flanges and adding a used yoke to my rear driveshaft, do I need to have the driveshafts or driveline balanced?

    driveshafts are balanced when made, you didn't change those at all, so they outta be fine.

    drivelines really "can't" be balanced...you "can" balance rotating assemblies tho, but need to pull everything to do it....you send in the motor/tranny/t-case and a shop balances the whole works.

    bucko bucks, and for 99.999999999999% of users, a waste.
