My front driveshaft is loose at the slip yoke. Loose being it has too much play up and down motion. I wanted to know with it having a 360 in it instead of the I-6 if the driveshaft was over extended? Sorry for the confusion.

Could just be that the slip joint is worn.
When you swapped in the 360 - Did the transmission bolt back in at OE location? ...or did it move?
Is any spline visible at normal ride height?
What about when front is at full droop?
Should have known better than to offer posting on Vanentine night - Doh!
Also, I don't have the book anymore ...it was given to a friend who needed it. Sorry.
I've never never disassembled anything connected to a D20 t/c so I don't know
if the t/c bolts directly to the transmission w/o an adaptor or not.
The aluminum transmissions connected to the D300 t/c do
use an adaptor - the OAL of T-4/5 plus t/c adaptor is 15 3/16"
Using drive shaft length as indicator ...the CJ T-18 to D20 is shorter than CJ T-4 to D300 -
