View Full Version : slop in the front driveshaft slip joint

One of my driveshafts has some slop in the slip joint, like in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VN47sECrmbQ) (not mine). It feels alright when its full of grease but eventually the grease gets worked out and then it starts to vibrate. I'm wondering if it help anything to replace the slip-yoke end of that or if the wear is on the male splines. Maybe just replace the cap? Any experience?

i showed my local driveshaft shop one like that and they said, run it, get another, or we can make one for you. like you i greased it up and as long as the grease is there its good. been good for several thousand miles. i think it depends on how often you want to do a full grease.
