How do you know how to correctly connect Drive Shaft to Rear Diff Flange?

How do you know how to correctly connect drive shaft to rear diff flange?
For example, from the factory on the stock drive shaft and rear diff flange there is the mark that shows how to match up shaft and flange if drive shaft is removed and re-installed.

1) Is there a similar mark on this new drive shaft?
2) Does this installation require any balancing?
3) Is it required/suggested to used new flange bolts?

Thanks in advance for you help.

When you remove the stock driveshaft you will see the wear marks on the flange. Just bolt the new driveshaft to the flange the same way it came off. There is no balancing required. Replacing the bolts is a good idea depending on their condition.. I just cleaned mine and used some Loctite. Make sure they are tight. I am not sure on the torque specs.....I just used an impact.
