My rear driveshaft slid right out of my transfer case this afternoon. The entire shaft came right out of the case (yoke, CV joint and all) I took some pics when I got home: http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/jsausman/lst?.dir=/73+Jimmy The shaft pic is the entire shaft. The yoke pic is the CV joint. The splines pic is a close up of the splines. It looks like when it came it out, it dented up some splines (the light mark on the splines in the pic). The case pic is the case. So what do I do? I unbolted the yoke from the CV joint and tried to push that back into the case and it doesn't go. I'm guessing from the dents in the shafts. I had planned on picking up a triangular file tomorrow and "fixing" that. My big question is why did that happen? What keeps the yoke in the case? It doesn't look like it clips or anything. How do I make sure that never happens again (obviously)? Do I need to get the shaft lengthened cause of the lift? If so, why did the shaft fall out on the road and not on the trail when I was flexing? Temporary solutions are greatly appreciated b/c I need to get the truck inspected in four days. Here is the timeline for backgound. Picked up truck on Monday, no problems Drove the truck a few days to work, no problems Took it for an alignment and to get the TSLs on new rims this morning, no problem Wheeled for about 2 hrs, started hearing a metallic rattling sound (like keys jingling) from the transfer case shifter that would go away when I held the shifter Stopped for lunch (highway driving), no problem Set out again for the trail, I hear a loud thud and a definite change with the way it was driving. I get out and the CV joint of the rear driveshaft is laying on the emergency brake cable!! I unbolted it from the rear axle and limped home in FWD. Other notes: the PO put hurst shifters in for the tranny and case found out when the shaft dropped that I had been in 4HI (still finding the line b/t 2HI and 4HI). So I had driven to lunch in 4HI Thanks!!!
