U joint question

So just replaced both rear ujoints and I had a quick question. All seems fine and I have not driven it as I am about to go to work but was wondering how many snap rings hold the drive shaft to the rear axle. Seems like only the two that connect to the driveshaft. Is that correct? The other two parts of the ujoint are held only by the 4 bolts and the u shaped cover?
Anthing else I should be aware of..Will not be driving till tomorrow morning so thought I would throw this out there first!
Thanks in advance

Yes, you should have 2 clips left over if you change out the rear joint on the rear drive shaft.
