Default Driveshaft Center Bearing replacement

Anybody tackle a center bearing replacement? I watched a mechanic friend do it before and it seems pretty straight forward. Either way I can't afford to pay for it right now so I will be doing it myself. Any tips are appreciated...

my tip is to mark everything that comes apart so it all gets put back together the same way it was, often a driveshaft is rotated and not reinstalled in the same place and it will lead to a vibration.

What he said, but with an exclamation mark. The yokes MUST go back together in-phase, or it WILL vibrate.

This has bee covered on here a bunch of times. It's petty straight forward, but would be worth searching for a how-to or a thread on the subject.
