Yeah thats what I thought, I can understand if the yoke was inserting too far into the trans tailshaft, but if the shorter driveshaft corrects this then why get one.

No you need a new slip yoke because the old one is worn where is rode on the TS bushing and is a possible source of vibration.

You need a new TS bushing for the same reason. My experience has been that the TS bushing compresses a bit due to its manufacturing process when inserted into the TS housing. In my case for for proper fit the bushing had to be honed using a brake cylinder hone. Now you slide in that old slip yoke and its proper tolerance unit it reaches the wear mark and now its a sloppy fit.

Go on roll the dice you might get lucky...a number of us do but when you dont get lucky it sucks. The time and money I spent hunting down these issues I could have bought about 2 new DS from dennys.

That's why you might need a new yoke. My problem is with those who force you to buy one, by telling you it's a "T5 yoke, required for conversion".

I have never needed to hone a tailshaft bushing. Typically, the tailshaft bushing can be installed with the trans in the car, without disturbing the tailshaft housing. The whole job takes about 2 hours, with the right tools.

That's a load nothing is "required" In fact the real t5 slip yoke wont even fit the classic style DS as it uses a different U-joint I recall.

I chose to buy a new driveshaft to save time and hassle. You will love this conversion!
