Changing a U Joint, or Universal Joint, in a Drive Shaft
Changing a U Joint, or universal Joint, in a Drive Shaft. I wanted to make
this video so I could show what I think are important steps in changing a U
Joint or Universal Joint in a Drive Shaft.The Ball Joint Press can be
borrowed from many Auto Parts Stores or cheaply got at Harbor Freight. .A U
Joint or Universal joint is commonly found in rear wheel and four wheel
drive vehicles.After removing a drive shaft from the vehicle ,You will want
to remove any grease fittings and the U Joint or universal Joint retaining
clips. Then I use a Ball Joint press to remove the U joint After removing
the U Joint or Universal joint you need to clean up the yoke that the
universal joint just came from. Compare the old U Joint with the new U
joint to be sure you have the right one. I then press the new U Joint in
with the Ball Joint Press.. I install one cap and push it most of the way
through ,so the cross sticks out enough to put the other cap on. Also
remember if You need to take apart a two piece Drive shaft then it needs to
be timed when slid back together.

compilation purposes and will be giving credit to all clip owners via
annotations that will be up on the video shortly after it is uploaded.

This is the easy stage of the job. Pulling and replacing carrier bearings
is actually fun, too. You get to rip them to pieces with little risk of

So many people are scared of the Lobro joint, but I assure you, unless you
couldn't build anything out of Lego's as a child, you're not going to have
any trouble with it. It's an amazingly simple part held in with 6 bolts, a
clamp, and a snap ring. If it comes apart, so long as you know where
everything goes, it will go back together. Don't worry.
This video shows you how to replace carrier bearings whether your Lobro
joint is healthy or not.

Heres a short tutorial on how to remove a bolt in axle shaft from a rear
end without the need of a slide hammer or any kind of special pullers.The
rear end shown in this video is a DANA 35 in a Jeep Cherokee. Ford 9 inch
rearends are similar. PLEASE NOTE*** If your axle flange DOESNT have the
access hole to remove the bolts as shown in this video...The rearend is
likely a C Clip rearend and this method WILL NOT work,and the diff cover
