just took a good look at the driveshaft on my mr688s truck and noticed this. i think i need to spin the drive shaft so the front half is in phase with the rear.

notice the yoke at the trans is opposite the yoke at the power divider.

yeah, unless you figured out a way to make that a three piece driveshaft you cant change the way its mounted, other than rotating it 180 but I dont think that will do anything.

I don't see a slip yoke in there anywhere, am I missing it somehow? or is there more than pictured?

Yoke's orientation is an important thing and is determined by shaft's working angles.

It's made some special way when engeneering the vehicle and must be used the way as from the factory.

So if you think that must be all in line it's not true.

With the slip yoke in the middle, your two far ends will be 90* out. NO way around it. As long as each single shaft itself has the ends lined up it(especially with a slip yoke where someone might split it), you are fine.

With any 3 piece shaft with a slip joint, the universals on each shaft will be at different locations. THe hanger bearing acts as a termination point for the front shaft and a starting point for the rear shaft. What is important ins that each yoke on each separate shaft are in phase with their mate. It is impossible on a 3 piece shaft to have all of the joints match. Paul
