Any one know if a 1998 4x4 explorer front drive shaft will work on a 1998 4x4 Ranger? I have one from an exploder but it seems to be a hair too long. I am having all sorts of problems getting the new one bolted in..... Its got a funny CV joint on the transfer case end that is giving me fits. any help would be great. I went to the library and looked at the haynes and chiltons. "installation is the reverse of removal" I got the old one out no problem because it was in pieces.
