    i went to go wheel the front axle back under my fj60 this mornin and i noticed that i forgot to mark the exact spot where the drive shaft fits back in...does this matter that its not in the same groves as it was before? thanks-al

    As long as you make sure the u-joints are in phase you should be fine.

    Yup, that is what he means. The brackets at the two ends of the driveshaft should be lined up.
