Quick question, I took off my front drive-line to put in new u-joints but I havent put it back in yet. I have the center diff pushed in and I have been driving around for about a week. My problem is this, I am driving up to Sacramento tomorrow (2 hours away) to pick up my new slee rear bumper (yes I am excited) and I wanted to know if driving freeway speeds is going to mess anything up?

Also, since I took the drive line off, I cleaned it up, but in the process the cleaner took my painted marks for lining it back up correctly off (ya I am a dumb ass........brake cleaner strips everything off!! :crybaby: ) Anyway, if I take it to a shop and get it balanced, will putting it back on in different location matter then? God I hope not!! :confused:

No problem, good to go! As for putting it back on, try it and see how to goes, there are only two ways the splines can go and be in the proper phase.

It's only OK if you have a CDL and have it engaged. Otherwise, it could damage your coupler, or so I have been told when I asked the same question 3 months ago.
