Daniel,

I have a spare complete 1994 rear driveshaft if you want to borrow it while you get yours worked on... Let me know.

Oh, and I haven't given up on that other thing with that guy in the place (I've never been to Belize) and will get in touch this week...

Spoke to Mike at Rocky Mountain Driveline. I plan to go there as soon as my OEM joint arrives from C-Dan. Thanks to some MUD posts and Mike telling me that Christo and Joe always bring him Toyota parts to use on the driveshafts, I decided to get the OEM part.

Mike said if I come in first thing in the AM he can do it in about 30 min while I wait.

Kraig - thanks for the offer. With such fast turnaround, I think I'll just pull the shaft, lock the center diff and drive over.

Driveshaft is out and goes in for work tomorrow. After its back in I'm going to pull the front and grease it. I was amazed at how much easier and more complete it was to pump out the old grease on the workbench. (I'm only replacing the rearmost U-joint so I cleaned and lubed the other)

Driving on FWD was fine, handled mostly the same, but was smoother, so I'm sure to be getting some vibration from the rear driveshaft. Makes sense with a loose u-joint.
