the part by the dif there is 4 bolts. to get thoose off have the car in park and take 2 off and then put the car in neutral so you can spin the d/s and take the other 2 off. then there are 2 more bolts for the center support and the the d/s should just slide out. the trans will leak fluid so be prepared

I found it best to drop only the center support and as you start to pull the engine/tranny you will find that it'll pivot and slide right out. It'll go right back in the same way without having to disconnect the entire driveshaft.

what if your not removing the engine or tranny, but just replacing the driveshaft with a lighter one? theres only 6 bolts, so it shouldnt take longer than an hour or two if that, right?

go.stfu I have just unbolted where the drive shaft barring is the 2 bolts. so it will just come out as I pull with the hoist or do I have to remove the 4 bolts near the barring center part of the driveshaft. If it just slides out will it go back in willingly or will I have to line up and turn the drive shaft for it to go back in. I also wanted to thank you guys for all the help.

When you drop the tranny mount and the tranny tilts downwards you should be able to slide the end of the driveshaft right out (assuming you took of the center support). Putting it back in meant having to turn the engine over a little to get the grooves to line up.

At least, that's what worked for me. =]

if you ddnt move the car it wouldnt need to get crank to match the teeth

but removing the draftshaft shouldnt take more than 15-20 mins
