I recently had both flex discs, center support bearing and front yoke replaced (I'm at 140k miles).

I had it done by the dealer. After reading the manual regarding:
- displacing the exhaust
- loosening the drive shaft collar nut
- tightening procedures for the collar nut
- etc

I determined that it would best be left to the pros. It was worth the couple of hours of labor. He found trouble that I would have not been able to correct as efficiently as he did. The front yoke off of the transmission had a wallowed out mounting hole. It seems that one of the bolts at the factory was not tightened properly and its looseness allowed some slop. New yoke and ZERO REGRETS. Best two point five hours I've bought in a while.

Good luck with making a decision. If I didn't have bad luck, I'd have no luck at all, but every once in a while I make a good choice. So I revel in it when I can. CHEERS!!!
