The U joint is glued in place if there the original. I use and blow torch to heat up the U joint's to melt the glue and use a hydraulic press to get the old u joints out. Do not use a 5 pound hammer to hammer out the U joint unless you don't mine a vibration in your drive shaft. The drive shaft are lighter now then the past and will damage to hard hammering. If there is a Auto Zone around your area, you can lone out a U joint removal tool which is cheaper then a new drive shaft. It's like a clamp, but one end has a cup shape to hold the drive shaft as the other end pushes the U joint out. Good luck and hope this helps. P.S don't burn your self.

there should 4 little bolts remove theme,from both end theres no seals on either side just be careful when u pull from tranny side youll loose some fluid (all over u if your not careful)the u joints r pretty simple if u have a vise they have little round clips you pop out then put a socket on the end of the joint hammer away or vise it will pop out one side at a time its hard for me to expain but if u know basic mech it will come to you while your down there loosen the little bolts the shaft will slide right outta the tranny,if u got vibration it might b the weight fell off or off balance you may need to get it machined and rebalanced

Testimonial: "To whom it may concern. I appreciate your explanation on the u-joint repair. It was very understandable. Good luck to you. Nick"
I have a 1992 chevy k1500 that did the exact same thing its really only when you back up right if so it is the rear brake shoe self adjusters there are wore down and everytime you back up then go forward the tire locks up tight my suggestion is to either buy new ones for it or jus get rid of them all together thats what i did

SOURCE: Just replaced rear joint on
There should be clips in the grooves on the caps that are held in by the drive shaft straps.All ujoint caps either have a clip in a groove or a snap ring clip on top that fits into a groove on the drive shaft yoke.These clips not only help keep the ujoint front spitting the caps out they also center the ujoint in the yoke on the rear axle.If you dont have a clip groove then you may have the wrong ujoint.Look closely at the old ujoint and you should see what I mean.Good Luck!

SOURCE: cant remove drive shaft from
Are you just trying to replace the u- joints? If so you are gonna need some serious heat like a torch and one big sledge. put the whole shaft on some 6x6 pieces of wood on the floor and get them cherry red then just beet the **** out of the drive shaft till they pop out i have done it many times. It might take a minute but it works!!
