Just got my front drive shaft back from having some work done on it. Invoice says "install new weld stub and slip yoke. Balance." It had lots of play in the slip splines. Now it has no play in the slip shaft which is good. However the front yoke doesn't look replaced to me. I was having issues with ujoints fitting before as the ears were bent. The ujoint in it is very stiff and the clips are bending outwards. To me that sounds wrong like they just rammed the ujoint back in and didn't replace the yoke. They say they did replace it and that it'll loosen up. They painted the entire shaft as well but I can see some rust on the yoke that makes me wonder if they actually did replace it. The "new" yoke doesn't look new to me.

So my question is, should the ujoint be stiff to the point it requires a fair amount of effort to move, and will it loosen up after a bit of time? I'm not sure I trust the shop all that much anymore.

Disregard this post haha. Went back to shop and double checked. Looks like I was right and the yoke wasn't replaced. Apparently some things got mixed up but it's all getting fixed now.
