4:16 time for test drive around the wash board....
Reslts."..........No More CLUNK
Prime suspect was RH OEM sway bar bushing. I cant tell if i-shaft was loose or not but it is new now and only off by only 340 degrees....NOT.
I did miss alignment mark by one tooth and still need to fight fire wall grommet. Several small finger cut on something sharp trying to get the i-shaft initial alignment and trying to get the grommet. This was making a mess and casued me to slip my grip. Will return nad fix alignmrnt.
Bottom line ....well worth the efort and also replaced the rear O2 snsor. This may have been changed before, the connector lock was not installed when i took the connector stay out of its mounting hole

Make sure your steering is kept locked at all times if you don't have the intermediate shaft in place......
Steering wheel was locked with seat belt until time for test drive.
Thought about the 2 bolts on the rack but chose the 2 bolts on the LCAs. They still had a fresh coat of copper anti sieze on them. LC dropped the 3 lower tranny mount, bolts so lowering thw back end was not a problem this time.
It does drive
BETTER.....much better than LC's 08 LT. Hers gets worked over next and she now has hew own TX license plates and inspection sticker. We can change her plugs and O2 sensors.
