First time I've ever experienced this with a vehicle. I'm a decent mechanic so pretty sure I can handle taking this apart and putting it back together but am I out a hundred bucks for the coupler? Or 300 for the coupler and shaft? 600 or more with a both couplers and the center bearing? Thinking i should probably replace it all while i'm down there but money is a little tight so what do we think?

thanks in advance.

Tmag:
I have not experienced this issue, but I believe you can just replace the coupler unless there is physical damage to other associated parts.

If the diff end is like the trans end, that center part goes over part of the flange of the yoke. If that's buggered, which it certainly looks to be there, you probably need a new shaft. I'd imagine if it is bent at all it could cause vibration issues.

Purchased the above mentioned kit. Comes with the entire assembly from trans to diff. Looked up the manufacturer of the couplers and it seems that they are a legit OEM manufacturer. I’ll post some photos of the tear down and build once she’s up and running again. Here’s hoping the rear diff and trans didn’t suffer at all.

Thanks Krautmaster, after pricing the couplers, center bearing, and not finding the u-joint listed, and doing the work I just sprung for the kit today, it will be here Saturday.
A local driveshaft shop said the center bushings at the ends should be replaced too.

What happened tmag103? No report or pics.

I installed a WIP driveshaft. It's a little larger in diameter, a little heavier (not much) and the spline coupling has a locking nut/collar.
The OE front is two pieces, the WIP is one, I like the serviceable Spicer u-joint.
Flex couplers are OE.
They do not dwell on it but I believe the WIP shaft superior in strength to the OE.
