    I am going to be having my front driveshaft redone to fit my new Dana 60. I was wondering if I can simply remove the front half of it, seperating it at the slip yoke, or if I need to take the entire driveshaft in? It is already balanced for my 10 bolt.

    You need to take the whole thing in.

    Two piece driveshafts are where you get in to "phasing" problems, so make sure if you take it apart, that the front and rear u-joints are oriented the same way.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?
