Repalced U Joints cannot get drive shaft back in
1999 Ram 1500 5.2 extended cab. Removed drive shaft and replaced leaking rear seal and U Joints, this is a one piece drive shaft. Now for what ever reason cannot for the life of me get the drive shaft back in the truck. When I place the front drive shaft yoke onto the trans spline and shove it forward it bottoms out and does not allow me enough clearence for the rear joint to slip into the rear end yoke.
It is late at night and give up on it for now. Would it matter if the parking brake is on? Just thinking of that but not sure if it matters.
