Re: rear driveshaft assembly
What do you need to know about it? they have a bearing behind a heat shield and also they have like a big rober washer called
i can't remeber the name but those washers have to be nice not cracked or to dry if you see cracks or worn out it is time to replace it.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Chockblock front wheels to prevent truck rolling, and jack vehicle up and place a jackstand under frame to prevent vehicle falling. Remove driveshaft, seal is now visible to be pried out for new one to be lightly tapped into place with a rubber mallet or hammer, along with a wooden block, taking care to keep new seal straight while replacing. replace driveshaft and check fluid level, lower vehicle and remove chockblocks.
The rear wheel drive cars can have their driveshafts removed by taking off the bolts where the driveshaft connects to the rear axle. The bolts may have Torx or Star type heads on them.
You would paint the ears of the joints to make sure the joints go back together in the same position as they started if you are seeking to change the U-joints. If you are doing this to change the rear trans seal on an automatic, be aware to check where the seal is installed.
Some seals are installed from the inside out on the tailshaft. Meaning the rear case of the trans must be separated from the main housing. Other more practical designs are accessible form the outside and do not require separation of the tailshaft.
I hope my solution is helpful and ask you to rate my solution.
Which bearing? The hub bearing? I can send it. I have your Ford shop manual & wiring books for $25, plus $4 shipping. Let me know.

If you mean the shaft that runs the accessories in the front causing a chattering noise, No, you need to loosen the mounts that hold the whole front assembly in place to remove the coupling though.
If you mean the rear driveshaft, then yes, Lift the vehicle, select neutral gear, apply the handbrake and mark the driveshaft at the rear where the driveshaft connects to the differential so it can be re fitted in the same position. Loosen the bolts one by one, releasing the handbrake to turn the driveshaft around to get to the next bolt. Take note of which way around the bolts are as this is important for the strength of the bolts in relation to the sheering action of the driveshaft.
Did you change the carrier bearing. It will be cheap compared to a transmission and new drive shaft. Got 1 in my shop right now. Customer did not listen. Check that carrier bearing Cost $1350vs $50
On vehicles covered by this information that are equipped with a two-piece rear driveshaft assembly, the center support bearing may be removed for replacement. To be sure if your driveshaft may be serviced, check with your local parts supplier or dealer for parts availability information.

Press the bearing assembly from the halfshaft.
Assemble the center support bearing to the driveshaft:
If removed, install the inner deflector onto the front shaft half and ***** punch the deflector at 2 opposite points to make sure it is tight on the shaft.
Fill the space between the inner dust shield and bearing with lithium soap grease.
Start the bearing and slinger assembly straight onto the shaft journal. Support the shaft and using a length of pipe over the splined end of the shaft, press the bearing and inner slinger against the shoulder of the front shaft half.
Install the bearing retainer, the rubber cushion onto bearing, the bracket onto the cushion and the retaining strap.
Align and install the driveshaft assembly to the vehicle.
it just pulls out. it hasa circlip that holds it in on driver side. which side?
