SOURCE: Trying to replace the rear u joint on a 2000 chevy

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.

SOURCE: There seems to be some play in rear u-joint on my

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

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!!

My ram 1500 makes loud clacking noises and it gets worse when the t-case is locked in four wheel drive hoping it's the tcase and not the front end but not sure how can I tell


I suspect that it is "U" joints or cv joints that is the problem
remove drive shafts and lock the t case in 4x4 and see it it makes the noise
refit the rear drive shaft after checking joints and if still no noise connect the front shaft. if the "U" joints checked out then it could be the joints in the drive axles at the pivot point ball
remove a hub drive plates and see if the noise is there
if it isn't then I would consider the joints in the axle shafts to be candidates for repair /replacement
it all has to do with the torque wind up when in 4x4 and any worn or failing joint will clack as it tries to work

this should take only a hr and half at the most with a good hammer and socket same size as the u-joint for a rear drive shaft (remove and replace)

Just replaced rear joint on my 1997 Chevy 1500 4x4 (5.7L). Went down the road and the caps on the joint that are tightened by the four bolts popped out. I did put in the clamp rings but they still popped...


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!

I need to replace a u joint


is this a 4x4? do you need to replace the u joint in the hub behind the front wheels? or in the drive shaft?
you can perform either one with some patience and a few tools, the driveshaft is retained by 4 bolts on the rear differential, remove them and pull the drive shaft forward toward transmission,then let down towards ground, and pull the shaft out of the back of transmission,(put down rags as some fluid may leak out).
find a suitable workbench to sit the shaft on preferably in a vise. Next remove the snap rings in the end of the shaft that still retain the u-joint (flat head screwdriver,tapping them out of place with a hammer usually works).
Once the snap rings are removed use a brass drift (solid shaft) or a deep socket that fits the diameter of the joint and doesn't overlap on to the shaft, with some heavy force strike the drift or socket with a hammer repetative working the joint out, when the cap comes off of one side, switch to other side to drive the joint in opposite direction in order to remove other cap, when the other cap comes out the actual joint will slide and remove on an angle.
When installing the new joint put just the joint section in the reciever part of drive shaft, carefully align and install the end caps and drive them in with a socket, once seated install 1 new snap ring, flip the joint over and install the other cap,
take caution to make sure the needle bearings in the cap do not become dislodeged, and that both new snap rings have seated in the groves or you will lose the u-joint after a few miles.

I have a 2006 chev 2500 HD. The steering wheel and 4x4 shifter shake very bad at 50mph. It has had a new transfer case put in, driveshaft balanced and all four tires checked. The vibration goes away if you...


u need to check rear end with the drive shaft removed vibration goes away would lead me to believe you have bad bearings in the rear end more than likely the pinion bearing
pull cover off (while fluid draining check to see if there a lot of metal in oil )
if you do see metal in fluid or laying in rear end you need rear end rebuilt or replaced
i wouldn't recommend doing the rebuild your self because with out the special tools and knowleage u can make matters worse

How do you get the front driveshaft out of 2001 chevy 4X4


Remove transfer case shield. Remove clamp on boot
where front drive shaft meets transfer case. use a flat
screwdriver to pry free end up and release clamp. (you need a special clamp tool to reinstall clamp )
Remove 4 bolts at differential end that hold U joint Retainers to yoke. Slide drive shaft to rear enough to clear yoke. then let drive shaft drop so it clears differential and slide forward until it come off transfer case shaft.
