Hi Pau,

I have this reman'd driveshaft sitting at my house in a box right now. I took it out and inspected it and it looks legit!

One obvious question, normally when people remove the driveshaft to replace just the guibo, or CSB, they mark the guibo so they are sure to mate the driveshaft back to the guibo in the exact same spot. I assume this is not necessary (as long as the guibo is installed properly) when putting in the rebuilt driveshaft sice my guibo is new, CSB is new and rear CV joint is also new, correct?

I have the correct gasket for the diff and will also be doing the rear pinion seal in the diff while the exhaust and driveshaft are off the car. Thanks!

Correct, sir! The hardest part is ensuring the guibo is installed correctly. The driveshaft is an easy R&R otherwise.

Just a note that I did this job and ordered the driveshaft from the same place as you, OP. Car drives amazing now, glad I ran across this thread when I did!
