ahh thank you. It has already been installed but it is about 90-95% compressed, there has to be some kind of movement to put the compression stage on there. On the 98 shafts there is no compression stage on the end of the shaft but in the rear joint it is allowed to move back and forth for the flex of the driveshaft and t-case over rough terrain. There is a lot of forces going on in the suspension over big bumps. But that is just my theory I could be wrong as well.
