gents,

i made a bit of a noob error putting a big old dent in my “dust cover” on my front driveshaft while doing my lift. anyway i ran out tonight to eyeball it (thanks @devo !). i also got to take a look at the driveshaft in general.

anyone mind eyeballing this for me?

i have a 3” lift in it now and was finally able to get under the rig recently to grease the zirks and put a little grease on the two @yoke shafts” or whatever i call those two areas.
anyway, there is no caster correction up front. and no vibrations.

is that length on the yoke shaft area OK?

also should i drop the shaft by undoing the four bolts at front or rear and make sure that dust cover has some additional room? or how do i inspect this exactly please?

the yoke where the dent is did not seem to have a lot of movement fore and aft. like about 1mm. not sure if this is an issue or not. the front axle itself has about 1/4” “free rotation”. i don’t think i checked rotation in the rear.

i’m pretty sure i did a good job not overfilling the yokes but i’ve never done it before.

THANKS

Methinks you may be way over thinking every single thing. Putting grease in is good, no need to ask consultation on that. Are you going to wheel this thing? You should think about a swaybar drop spacers to avoid more driveshaft dents if so IMO.
thanks man. i’ll look into spacers.
