    I have a 208 t-case on my 87 Blazer. The rear output shaft has a bit of play. Is some play normal or is that a sign of worn bearings? I have a vibration problem and replaced/balanced near everything else that might be a problem. Before I dig into the output shaft, I thought I'd ask. I think I need to replace my tranny mount too, or at least the t-case mounting, just in case that could be a factor also.

    you might need to replace the metal bushing that the slip yoke rides in. it's just inside of the output shaft behind the slip yoke seal. it's like $7 at the dealer.

    Just take out the tail housing, remove the seal either with a screw driver or a seal remover, and then from the inside using a pipe or socket or the proper bushing remover to tap the bushing out.
    Installation is reverse.

    it's a good idea to put the bushing in the freezer the night before so that the cold will shrink it just a little bit to make it a little easier to put the bushing in the housing.
