    Is it normal for the back wheels to still turn with the truck on jack stands in neutral (ahhh, engine running that is). They don't turn like they do in drive, but.... I just thought it was a little wierd. But I was also in the middle of stessing over this drive shaft crap.

    I miss my Ex, but my aim is getting better!

    Yep. With no resistance on the output, just the fluid moving around inside a tranny can cause the output shaft to spin. It's nothing to worry about. Just set the parking brake if you don't want the wheels to turn.

    Well, I was checking out my drive shaft vibration, so I needed them to turn. I thought it was all good, cause I remember, my 99 nissan altima, would surge a little we I rev'd it up in park. Figured it was the same thing. Cool beans. Thansk HARRY
