Default 1971 Dodge challenger

Why would you need to reset the pinon preload when replacing the drive shaft on a 1971 Dodge challenger?

WOW... now that is a question. I really don't know why. I have replaced the driveshaft on my 71 and did not reset the pinon preload and it seems fine after 22,000 miles. Maybe someone will chime in and give us some insight.

Agree. As long as you have not undone the pinion nut there is no implications to the pinion in a correct driveshaft swap.
