Yeah, I put the shaft on the final drive and bolted it up, placed bolts and nuts through front shaft to flange, preloaded bearing (pushed shaft towards transmission as far as I could and tightened center bearing. I don't know if I messed up our what. I didn't mark the drive shaft flange to transmission flange/flex disc before I pulled that apart. I don't see how that could cause that though...
