alright guys a bit of an update,

after getting the tires fitted i had a peek under the car to realize that the center bearing had s**t itself.

below is how to replace it.
note some photos are taken once i had put it back together as i forgot to take the photos at the time.
jack the car up and put it on 4 jack stands.

Where the tail shaft connects to the transmission coupling bush remove the 3 bolts and nuts, note they are installed opposite to the other 3. i also marked the tail shaft just so i could install it the same way it was removed.
Image
then remove the 6 bolts that screw into the diff housing, they are a 10mm bolt, i used a rattle gun to remove them. Rotating the tail shaft after i had done two at a time.
Image
Then the center bearing is held in by two 10mm bolts also remove these and the tail shaft should become loose.
Image
at the transmission end slide a flat head screw driver in between the tail shaft and the coupling bush to remove the 10mmshaft that the tail shaft slides into. refer to this picture again
Image

The tail shaft now can be removed with ease.

To replace the center bearing, you need a vice or a press.
Once the tail shaft is out you can look at the uni joint, two yokes and a uni joint itself.
Image
need to remove all 4 c clips
Image
This is where a press or vice will be needed, using something to sleeve and a rod the size of the end caps press the end cap out the other end, untill the uni itself cannot go further,
Image
remove the end cap that has just been pushed out. Repeat this for 3 more caps to remove the uni joint.
Note i replaced the uni joint with a new one just because the car has traveled 178,000kms and its time for a new one.
i forgot to take a couple of photos here.

Once the uni joint has been removed you will have two separate sections,

The yoke with the center bearing connected will have a nut off the top of my head its 24mm, you will need to remove this, i had to use a breaker bar.
Image
photo above you can see the nut that needs to be removed.

Then remove the yoke which is on a spline that will pull off with ease.
you will be then left with this, the center bearing can be removed with a flat head screw driver behalf the bearing, note not to mark the shaft.
Image
the shaft with the bearing off
Image
The new bearing, NOTE their is Two different sizes 30mm for 6 cylinder models and a 35mm for v8's this photo is of a 35mm bearing. i changed it over to a 30mm the next day
Image

I installed the new bearing, fitted the yoke, installed the new uni joint and painted the tail shaft.
Image

Reinstalled in the car and went for a test drive.

well abit of an update.

Car got its road worthy done.

Last friday i drove up to Kyneton and got the car registered in victoria :)
Also after that i then went to Tidd Brothers exhaust in altona. Cannot speak higher of the guys who work there and how nice they are, let me watch them put the exhaust on the car. Cheap price too. I got a 2 1/2" Red Back cat back exhaust with 2 mufflers. reason being i cant handle drone and id rather it that little quieter.

Also got a set of Super low King springs for the car. Started with SL in the front and SSL in the rear, but i couldnt get out of the drive way, so jacked the car up swapped them for SL's in the rear and now it sits perfect :-) ill post photo's soon
