rear tatton help.

I I got my rear drive shaft on today, every thing is tight, but when I grab the drive shaft I can twist it, when doing this it moves the pinion flange in and out, same thing on the transfer case side, nothing up and down, just in and out. Thanks, I did this all by hand tools, so I may need to hit it with an air gun.

Did you check the pinion bearing preload before torquing down the nut? Im guessing not being that you are saying that you need to simply "hit it with an air gun". Its a precise measurement that requires a inch pound torque wrench, with the front/and/or rear end jacked up, brakes disco'd and shafts pulled out a bit. I believe the torque on the tcase end nut is 130 ft/lbs. Pinion nut is more and vehicle to vehicle dependent. Just torquing it to a generic "160 ft/lbs" is not the way it is suppose to be done at all.
