Drive shaft evaluation.

All the part numbers I could find appear to be stock. Does this driveline look normal/ok ?

thank you,
B-Rad

I can't tell about the angles because of the angle of the pictures, but the parts are all stock and since your control arms are stock, you won't be able to adjust anyway. To really measure your angles, move the Jeep so that the pinion yoke has holding the u-joint is pointing straight down. Then use a socket that fits in the u-joint with an angle finder to measure the pinion angle. Then, do the same for the u-joint at the tail shaft end. Both angles should be identical.

looks like as it should.. You might have rear pinon leak however, based on the oil like wash on the diff housing.

You can also measure pinion angle by putting your angle finder on the round machined boss on either side of the cover.
