Swapping the Yoke on a D44 - pull the gears or can I just retorque the new yoke on?

on the trail a few weeks ago I had some serious axle-wrap take out a rear ujoint. While it took out the ujoint, it also wiped out the little ears on the yoke that keep the ujoint centered. I have a swap for the ujoint but not sure if I can swap it out in my garage(pull driveshaft, pull old yoke, put on new yoke, torque properly to set) or if I'll have to have the axles/gearset pulled to get this done.

If I can just swap the yokes, what's the torque setting?

Thanks,
Mike

You can just swap them. I'm not sure on the actual torque spec, but I go somewhere around 90 ft lbs. The shims will keep the yoke from bottoming the bearing, can't really do any harm by going tight.

Just to confirm, does a D44 use shims for setting pinion preload or does it use a crush sleeve(since I didn't specify above but you replied stating shims). If it uses shims, that'll make things much easier.

Thanks for the response Wilson.

Shims, I knew what you were getting at, which I was saying not to worry about it
