if the driveshaft isnt bent and the joint ends are still good then it should be fine and for the u joints u are prolly better off just getting new ones there not that much to know for sure there good!

If you got a 2 piece you can put one hand on each one and move the shafts in opposite directions. If it's bad, you'll know. You really need to check alot of u-joints to get a feel for what's diffently bad and good.

Speaking of u-joints.............anyone got the whole listing of Dana part #'s?
