Question about 1984 Nissan King Cab
Usually you do not have to change the driveshaft. Here is what you need to look out for: driveline phasing. Not all systems have one larger spline between the two shafts and if you rotate by a notch, the shaft can bind and not be balanced. This is not a big deal, just mark everything. If you replace a U joint, mark and do not rotate the yoke.
The center bearing usuall bolts in two or more places, sometimed inside on the tunnel housing, anyways unbolt it and it will come out...
I presume that you know that you need to unbolt the u-bolt caps, and tape the caps so as to not loose and chase bearings all around...
Once you get it on a bench, also feel the u-joints. You are going to want to change them, rent a tool, or take it to a shop. Paint or stake the pieces for alignment....
For u-joints, they go back and forth, in a pretty small arch, and old grease cakes up at the ends of the travel, this makes an unsmoothness that you can feel when moving the joint around. This makes for vibration...
And be ready for trans fluid to come out, unless your u-joint unscrews there, also. it is just nice to catch the fluid. and be ready to plug the output shaft with something while shaft is out...
