Dang Jerry - - You are just a regular parts manual arent ya! Hell I can't even remember my phone number LOL.
Wolfbone...do yourself a favor that will last your whole life: Change your own u-joint. It's dang near impossible to screw up and it's just something a man needs to know how to do.
List of things all men need to know how to do: Sweat copper pipe, patch drywall, replace u-joints.... see it's right there on page four of the MAN handbook Oh yeah...page 12 - - use a gasoline soaked rag to start a diesel with a weak battery - - that one has to be in there somewhere.

|Jerry Bransford||The driveshaft itself won't need replacing, only the u-joints on it which are <$20 each... there are two on your rear driveshaft. Spicer's 5-785x u-joint is a great upgrade that is also more durable for the stock Spicer 5-297 u-joint that the factory installed. A driveshaft repair shop or general garage... 4x4 shop too... can easily and inexpensively replace the u-joints for you.|

oh nothing yet, just that they are orginal with a 145k miles on them and a machenic that I know said it might be a good idea to replace them before they give me problems down the road thats all
Thanks Jerry for a brief answer on them it does help.

|Jerry Bransford||There is no real difference in any of the rear driveshafts except for their length. What is wrong with your existing drive shaft?|

Ok question: what is the differece on the 97-02 and the 03-06 rear drive shafts for an automatic because for some odd reason I can't find a rear drive shaft that fits a 97-02 that is for an automatic.
I've got a 2000 4.0L 3spd auto
