Thanks Roger, The alignment I am refering to is not the angle but the sequencing of the shaft itself. The alignment of the flanges and yokes is what I am refering to. I checked it last night and the zerk fitting and flanges are not in the same orientation (facing the same way). My rear pinion flange is out of alignment with the center support bearing flange by 45 degrees. That tells me the flange on the center support bearing may not installed correctly. If my memory serves me well all zerk fittings should be in the same orientation (all facing the same way) and all yokes are orientated the same way. According to my toyota factory service manual there is suppose to be an alignment mark on the center support bearing flange which is to be aligned to a mark on the intermediate spline shaft. I suspect the spline slip yoke on the rear drive shaft came out of the rear drive and was re-installed out of rotational alignment and or the center support bearing flange is out of alignment. Does anyone know what the alignment of these items should be ?
