1st - set parking brake AND chock tires.
2nd - mark the driveshaft flange where it meets the differential. This will allow you to re-install it in the same position.
3rd - remove the metal band holding the rubber boot to the driveshaft. I wasn't able to re-use the band.
4th - Remove the 4 bolts (13MM maybe? and mine were really tight) from the flange where it meets the axle. I had to hit the flange with a hammer a couple times to break it free after the bolts were removed.
5th - Remove driveshaft
6th - I sprayed parts cleaner in the female part of the shaft to remove any residue. I also cleaned the male end. There was no grease on either, it was more like a blue paint and it wouldn't come off with cleaner.
7th - grease the splines
8th - re-install the shaft in reverse order. I used a large zip tie to re-secure the boot to the driveshaft.
I used synthetic grease and I think the bump is starting to come back after a couple thousand miles.
Hope that helps.
That's bud! I plan on doing this while I'm changing the oil. You only remove the front part of the driveshaft right? You don't remove the part that connects to the rear differential?
