I think there should be about 3/4" clearance left inside the yoke to output shaft for rearend travel. Make check with Denny's

They do the same quality of work the price is the same and you do not have the shipping charge to deal with.. I just got a steel shaft built for the truck and it was 150 ..

Thanks Pepi, Good Info, there's only one place around here & they don't do very good work.

Push the yoke in fully. Some 4L60E will have a sleeve with O ring on it tha the yoke slides into for leak prevention. This may give a false sense that the yoke is fully installed. Pulling the transmission tail housing off may be a good idea to look for the sleeve

Yoke should be pulled back about 3/4 inch after it is fully installed.
