I'm no expert at all in this so I will defer to ANYONE with more experience. I just completed lubing the final drive and I did install the part of the drive shaft inside the swing arm first into the U-joint then installed the final drive unit on the wheel and slid into place...it took forever to get the drive shaft arm back into the U-joint but I found that was the easiest way to do it. Not sure if this is exactly what you were asking but figured i would add my two cents....AGAIN NOT AN EXPERT AT ALL!!!
