while getting ready to install the drive shaft between the bell housing and the trans, my buddy told me i need to offset the u-joints (in other words, place the splined part so that the u joints are 90 degrees off from eachother) to avoid bad vibes....i dont think ive ever heard of sure most of you know if this needs to be done. thanks, kris

im thinking ill just send it back for a rebalance...and mention this shaft spin 2800 rpm.
sdo, great idea about replacing the zerks with a 45 zerk. ...but im not sure what you mean about the plug. im assuming i just cant unscrew the original and replace with a 45?
ah got it....mine had zerks in place...90s....i wonder if a 45 would takr grease easier? im planning in putting the shaft in in a few days. can i get a metric zerk at napa?
