Talking about the passenger side front drive axle, it's outer and inner u-joints.
They need be installed indexed in phase with one another, ensure it functions correctly as a unit, doesn't cause vibration.
Sorryabout that.I just remember when I did my ball joints a fella had told me to make sure the joints were aligned properly.He said that if they were more than a couple splines off it could cause premature failure of the joints.I think mine is a dana 44,maybe the other two types are indexed That was my first time havin' to do somethin' like that.Anyways sorry for that.
