Yoke Issues

at 67+mph I start getting a pretty bad vibration, I could feel it in my *** so I knew it was driveline. Come to find out the rear (shaft to differential) u-joint could slide laterally about 3/32" - 1/8". I figured the ujoint was shot so I bought another one but when i test fit the new one in the yoke, i realized the tabs that center the u-joint in the yoke were not narrow enough and it would let the caps slide out and the joint itself, slide back and forth. I'm 99% sure I have the right ujoint.

A. Has anyone had this same problem?
B. The rearend in my truck is an early 99 rearend. (my truck is a late 99) this issue did not start till i put this rearend under it.
C. IF I decided to replace the yoke, is it as simple as undoing that nut, popping the old yoke off and putting the new yoke on? (I am aware there is a crush sleeve and bearings etc.,) If so, how tight do I torque it to?
D. Should I say screw it and put a rearend from a Late 1999+ in it?

Thanks in advance!

what you could try doing is measuring the torque to remove the nut and torqueing it back to the same amount. that might get you close enough.

you're supposed to remove the carrier and tighten the pinion until you have 5-10 inch pounds of rotational force to turn the pinion without the carrier.

is the e99 a drum brake rear?

Go back to parts store and ask for an e99 & a 99.5 and up u joint and look at them side by side.
IIRC I thought they were the same though.
