Driveshaft install . . . silicone

I am tackling this today and have watched all the videos. One thing I couldnt find is what type of silicone to use . . . Any input?

BTW, Happy Thanksgiving!

Sorry, can't help with the silicone question.

One tip: If you have an auto, be sure to NOT leave the key in the ignition and set to ON, so that you can move the transmission to N, overnight. Otherwise you'll end up buying a new battery the next day. Yes, I did this. D'Oh!.

I have not yet done this but i would use RTV. I believe it is to prevent trans case fluid from leaking when tje yoke is changed

I used the rvt cooper gasket maker and the right stuff gasket maker the 6 sets I have put on dont leak just make sure you dont use to much other wise it will spread out to the seal and cause a leak. Also give it sometime to setup before you drive it
