Drivetrain Should I Have This Space Between My Trans And Driveshaft?

  1. 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.

  2. See what the gap is when the car is on the ground.
  3. ^this^
  4. 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.

  5. 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.
