05 48re
1 piece driveshaft - found out the previous owner had the shaft 3/4 of an in too long, dust boot on seal kept riding on shoulder of slip joint yoke which would end up pulling the seal out of the housing.
This last time the housing bushing walked out also.
I removed the bushing but before installing the new one i cant see past the output shaft to determine the orientation of the drain/fill hole in the bushing.
There is a half circle at about the 7 o'clock position that reaches all of the way to the seal seat.
There is a hole inside the housing at about the 1 o'clock position that is significantly bigger and a lot closer to the bushing hole size and location when installed.
The service manual doesn't even show this bushing or explain its installation.
Ive been told the bushing hole goes at the 6 AND the 12 o'clock positions so hoping for some actual concrete evidence on the subject.
Pics are

1 o'clock postion hole (almost looks like a W or toothe in the middle of it

What's the FSM say (if it does at all)?
It doesn't even show a 2wd extension housing or bushing, or mention its orientation.
Andbi have the 9 volumes service manual
Well for an update there are no tools that exist for a 48re 2wd extension housing bushing .
There are tools for 42 and 46 but they are too short and too small in diameter.
Still searching, might try some schedule 40 pvc pipe combinations
