Driveshaft

Well I'm in the process of putting my aluminum driveshaft in my car. Got all four bolts loose, but the little bastard doesn't want to budge. Any tips to get the driveshaft off??

Penetrating oil and a few good whacks with a hammer should loosen it.
Pay attention and mark how it is on there in case you should ever need to put it back. If you get it out of time it will vibrate.

Once you get the back down you should be able to slide it back.

Yeah if it doesn't slide out easily there's a problem...also a tailshaft plug might be a good idea to keep from dripping trans fluid..and keep out dirt and debris...

It was the stock driveshaft. It was sitting out for a long time. Then The guy put it back on when he sold it to me. So the yoke had a little rust on it

Hope that didn't damage your seal and tailshaft bushing.
