    Got done working on the rear end last weekend and bolted the drive shaft back on but once it was back on I noticed this space between the trans and drive shaft yoke. Should this be all the way up into the tranny or is it b/c out slightly b/c the car is on jack stands and higher up in the front, or is this normal? Nothing changed from when I disconnected it to remove the rear end other then having it rebuilt and installing Team Z upper control arms.

    See what the gap is when the car is on the ground.

    That's totally normal. It's designed to have a slight gap there so that the driveshaft can move forward a little bit when the suspension moves.

    ok I figued it was something like that but I wanted to be sure. I'm trying to avoid any last min issues before I get ready to finish it up and start it up again. I didn't think it was anything abnormal but its better to check before hand then deal with problems after you thought you were done.
