I must replace the oxygen sensor in my 2001 Chevy Silverado. I found it on the front side of the catalytic conv. but the space is so tight what is the best way to remove and replace this part?

You should be able to remove it with a 7/8" combination wrench. There is also a special socket for O2's that you can purchase or maybe borrow from a parts store.

I have a 2wd 2003 chevy s-10 extended cab short box pickup. The rear half of the driveshaft is starting to vibrate. I was told I had to replace the whole driveshaft, but I am finding it very difficult to...

You shouldn't have to replace the whole shaft. Go to auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and tell them you need the Rear u-joint for the Drive Shaft of that vehicle and they should have it. The replacement process is a little tedious but can be done. Get the Haynes repair Manual on your vehicle, while your there at the Auto parts store, and look up the Drive Shaft. It will tell you how to remove, inspect and if needed replace the U-Joints on your drive shaft. If in fact for some reason, and I have never seen or heard of this, the U-Joints can't be replaced the Manual will tell you. Because they are usually pressed in on the shaft itself some say you have to replace the whole thing but they can normally be removed with a little muscle.

How to change ball joints on 1994 chevy blazer

Changing the actual ball joints themselves is pretty easy (the replacements just bolt in), however disassembling everything else is very involved, especially if you have a 4x4. Some of the original equipment ball joints are riveted in, so you may need to drill out the rivets to remove the old ball joints. Some models have ball joints that are pressed in. (Your model should not be pressed in. They are either riveted or bolted if they have been replaced already) This is not a job I would recommend to someone who does not know how to do it. You need to disassemble/take tension off the suspension, disassemble the steering knuckles, etc. There are specialized tools you will need as well such as a pickle fork for breaking the knuckle away from the ball joint/A arm, spring compressor or torsion bar removal tool (depending on what your vehicle is equipped with), torque wrench, etc.

If you are set on tackling it anway, do yourself a favor and go to your local auto parts store and pick up a repair manual for your Blazer. It will have the procedure to step you through it, torque specs, and tool part numbers listed in it.
