I took the front shaft to ron at lunch and he said the slip yoke was pretty wobbly. also mentioned that the front half of the slip yoke (female part) looked t be pretty long for a toyota of that year. weird.
anyways, he's looking at it and will probably have an estimate for a rebuilt one tomorrow i'd guess.
Also, he said with the amount of lift on my truck (ome heavy heavy) the double cardan might not be neccesary.
jeeze it'll be nice when this is fixed.
