Default Replacing U-Joints


I'm planning on replacing the u-joint by my rear differential and I wanted to ask an opinion: Should I remove the entire drive shaft (unbolt both flanges) or just the rear flange and seperate the shaft at the splines. Of course, everything gets marked before removal. (I've been considering purchasing a dial gauge for some time now, so I could check the run-out of the shaft.) Any thoughts or suggestions?

I'm also planning on replacing the "insulator" (at least, thats what Toyota calls it) between the cross-member and the transfer case/transmission. It looks like a relatively easy job. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
