    My front driveshaft has a lot of play in the slip yoke...i can wiggle it up and down a lot, maybe 1/2" or more. What is likely to have orn out here? Would i need to get it resplined? I have pumped it full of grease and it doesn't help. thanks

    Mine does the same thing but not as much play. I know on new shafts, the splines have a blue plastic coating on them so I'm thinking maybe thats whats worn out but I'm not sure?? Either that or the splines themselves are shot. I'm sure someone on here will know what the deal is.

    You cut the old spline section off and replace it- Jess
