What is acceptable driveline slop?
With my digital protractor I get these rotational measurements:
Front diff yoke no driveshaft attached 16 degrees
Rear diff yoke with drivehaft 6 degrees
Rear T-case output is the same 6 degrees as above, the driveshaft is still attached
Front T-case output without driveshaft 40+ degrees
T-case is unlocked, transmission in neutral.

In my other broken LT230 thread someone mentioned re-adjusting the layshaft.
Is this possible with the T-case in the truck? How is this accomplished?
Where else should I look for this slop?

I will take the front diff apart and check backlash and fastener torques.

If you accumulate the backlash from the transmission output shaft to the transfer case input gear spline, to the backlash in the Tcase gears, and the center diff spider gears, and the backlash in the ring-pinion, and the spider gears, and the axle shafts splines and the slop in the CV joints and the drive flanges at the wheels, and the loose balljoint on the rear axles and the amount of rotation of the front axlehousing in the radius arms, you get a whole lot of Slop! And its all pretty much normal in a Land Rover.
