drive shaft question.

I replaced my rear output shaft seal in my 89 5.0 , well I put the driveshaft back on and never thought it might matter which holes it went in. I know I should have marked it , but it just slipped my mind. I did notice the bolts were a lot harder to screw in then they were to take out ,, any words of wisdom would be appreciated. Thanks

Well bolt it up and if it vibrates some swap holes till it doesn't vibrate.


Or it just might be good the first time around.

Its harder to screw in because you probably were using the 4 holes that were not used originally. There are 8 holes total so the 4 unused ones were crudded up from decades of not being used. As long as you got it tight they should be fine though.
