SOURCE: Rear drive shaft seal leaking
Yes, but you will need to mark the yoke position and exact number of turns to remove the nut or you will change ring and pinion gear lash setting when re-installing it. You can use a large pipe wrench to hold the yoke still while tightening, or get a special tool made for that.

remove the rear shaft from a 1990 full size gmc van (g-van) make sure the one you select has the scew on sleeve at the front of the rear section of the shaft
this will be the right lenght
take the rear yolk off your old shaft cut of the ball socket now get the same u-joint your truck calls for and mount the rear yolk (the section of the shaft that bolts to your rear end) to the new shaft
this works ive done it
you eliminate 2 of the 4 u-joints and lighten up your shaft this releives strain on you tranny and rear end when these u-joints and ball bearings fail they cause the vibrations which ruin the rest of your drive train also you gain 10hp
i spent 300 bucks rebuilding the OEM shaft and got no where so for 25 bucks i did this

Mark the driveshaft and yoke in a manner that will allow you to reassemble it in the same orientation that it's in now. This is done to avoid driveline vibrations. Next remove the 4 7/16" head bolts on the driveshaft yoke. Use a lone screw driver or pry bar to pop the driveshaft off the yoke and slide the other end out of the transmission. Using a u-joint tool press out the old u-joint and press in the new one. You could bring this to a machine shop or a mechanic and have them do it for you if you don't have the correct tools. I think autozone may rent a ball joint press out for free. Next reassemble it orientated the same way you took it off.

Common for the transmission line to the radiator has failed due to corrosion. You can replace the line or section it off bad part with a new line, just make sure you use compression clamps. I had the same problem and i ended up running a new line with a inline remote transmission oil filter. B&M makes a universal remote transmission oil filter and runs around $45.00. Good luck and hope it's just the line that went bad, keep me posted.

Testimonial: "very helpful, the line popped out of the tranny, clip-on type. I do not understand what would cause it. Thanks"
Watch what clinks?
You should see the vacuum servo move the linkage. The servo could have a leak. You can connect your own hose to the servo temporarily, and simply **** on it, then plug it with your tongue. After about 15 seconds, if it holds that vacuum, then no leaks.
The linkage could also be binding. Transfer case could also be binding. Try helping the servo by hand. Careful when under the vehicle. Chock wheels and make sure in neutral while underneath.
