Here's the latest on getting the shaft. Given that the inside diameter of the top hat bushing is 18mm or .708" my olive measured in three different spots came to .692, .700 and .6935. Per Wes I the outside diameter of the olive should be .705-.707. I'd say that puppy is a bit worn. Now, the million dollar question is: what is an acceptable tolerance or what can I live with? I am going to have the driveshaft balanced to eliminate that part of the equation, then drive the car to see if any vibration is there or, can I live with it as it is. It took 90K miles to wear off .014" on the worst point on the olive so.....Interestingly enough, the groove in the bushing was only on one spot. It didn't wear the entire diameter of the bushing. I would be open to some feedback...TIA DB and Happy Thanks Giving
