I have used 125 ft/lb on a few and it has always worked.
Im hoping not to have to replace my sleeve so im going to replace the seal and nut only and see what happens.Here's what I did...there is a torque setting for how much it takes to spin the pinion and make the back tire spin. I kept tightening the nut until I achieved the proper torque to spin the pinion. I cannot remember off hand what the value was, but I stayed on the low side.
When I took mine apart, I was a bit surprised how loose the nut was. Did not take much to break it.
Make sure you use a new nut that has proper sealant. I assume you'll use a Speedi-Sleeve?
You should not have to do that. Can you push the drive into the tranny enough to get clearance.
It seems like they’ve never been changed, where can i order some. But they fell on the dirty floor sadly, what grease can i use to stick back on once i clean themAs long as you did not lose any of the needle bearings and they are clean, just slide them back on. Do you know the age of the U-joints? You may want to just install new ones. I got into a bad case of while you are at it and installed new bearings and cleaned and detailed the drive shaft.

Last year I went to the local Advance Auto and they had them on the shelf. They said they knew I was coming. You should be able to get them locally at most any parts store. They are very common.It seems like they’ve never been changed, where can i order some. But they fell on the dirty floor sadly, what grease can i use to stick back on once i clean them
Ditto on watching youtube videos. Very simple once you watch them.X2 on replacing u-joints. Worn joints can contribute to pinion seal leak. Replacing u-joints isn‘t difficult, but it’s not hard to screw it up. I’d encourage you to do it; maybe watch some YouTube vids first. If you’re not confident, any driveline shop can do it but they’ll all be closed until Monday.
