Hmmm, I wouldn't think so but it's hard to get the whole picture here. A picture with more in the frame could be helpfull or another angle.

is the truck lifted? Also, the 5.2s have a yoke like that? with the weight and all. I thought they just had a standard yoke and shaft. May have the wrong shaft in, like one from a 3rd gen or somethen.

^^^ No he has the right shaft, there were one's like that on 2nd gens. Looks like a rear seal was replaced was the right seal used?

How about a picture from the side showing the pinion of the rear differential and the driveshaft?

How are your ubolts? How long has it been like this as it seems like you've not seen it out this far before?

I went and looked at mine and it looks about the same. I can post pictures later. A reason it may look further out is the OEM seal had a dust boot attached to it that covered that section and for some reason replacement seals don't (or I never found one when I rebuilt my t-case).

i had recently bought the truck, a month to be exact. its not lifted, there is a receipt in the dash saying the t-case was rebuilt. so maybe thats why its missing the dust boot.

the reason im wondering is because the truck has a slight grinding noise when in gear (nv3500) its disappears when i press in the clutch. sometimes it noisier than usual, i usually pump the clutch a few times and it makes it less noticeable.

What gear is the grinding sound you are hearing? The dust boot is part of the seal. So you may have an aftermarket seal and that why it looks like it does. Have you checked the fluid level in your transmission? And is it the correct fluid?
