chevy silverado 1998 5.7 l z71. My truck is almost all aftermarket so its aguessing game everytime. My front driveshaft has a broken seal on it. Under 40km h 4×4 hi and low work fine over 40km  its hard to keep it out of the trees it shakes so bad. Yokes are tight and cvs are fine its gotta be that seal right? Do i need a new seal some greese and a good clean. Or am i repacing the whole front shaft? And should i wait if im lifting it up way more 6 inch suspension and 6 inch body?

Question
Hi, I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad cab with a 5.7l Hemi and a 9.25″ rear end. I recently replaced the pinion seal. Before I removed the pinion nut marked its orientation. When I did remove the nut I noticed it was’t too tight and hardly required the breaker bar. I put it back together and returned the nut to its original location. I then drove the truck 100 miles with no trouble and parked it. I have since purchase a SRM and learned about preloading the bearing by torquing the pinion nut to 210 ft lbs. There is no way I did that. I plan on going back under this weekend and using the torque require to turn the flange method of setting the torque at the nut. Did that 100 miles damage the rear end or the crush spacer? Do I really need a new nut per the manual? Why was the nut so loose to begin with? Where did I go wrong? Thanks

Is there a rear end that bolts to a stock 1981 Camaro, that has disk brakes and a better differential, possibly a posi-traction differential, but not necessary. Just that it bolts on to it, and has disk brakes. Correct me if i’m wrong, that the 1981 camaro has a 62.50 inch wide rear axle, so if something is the same length, would it be better?

Question
Need to replace 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 drive shaft. Wondering what other years/models would work? Having a hard time finding exact part for year and it is close to New Years so many places are closed. Need to get it done fast to get family and trailer home over roads that require 4×4 driving.  Found a 2014 2500 drive shaft, would this work for one-for-one replacement?    The 2007 is a 6.7l and is the truck that needs a new front drive shaft.    Thank you very much for the help.
