I have a leak of grease from the back of the truck between the rear tires under the truck. What could it be?


Sounds like a bad seal from pinion gear output shaft. ( if rear wheel drive ). To repair, take drive shaft off by removing the 2 u-bolts at the rear of shaft. A screwdriver is handy 2 pry shaft forward enough 2 remove shaft. This is the tricky part, the 2 bearing caps on u- joint r gonna want 2 fall out! Have a length of tape handy & run tape around the caps so u dont loose dozens of lil needle bearings. Also, ur gonna loose oil outta the rear of trans so use a pan 2 catch drippings. Next u have 2 remove nut holding rear yoke, where u-bolts were, find appro puller, remove yoke. Seal now should b avalible 4 rmoval.use seal puller, le. screwdriver&bfh, install new seal & rest is reverse order. Dont loose ur bearings,the're hard 2 find in the dirt! I kno 1st hand.

Truck jumping in first and second gear once clutch is let out fully when accelarating


I am guessing here but I am sure that the yokes on the shafts are not in phase . That is to say that the cross pieces are out of wack. check the position of the gearbox yoke and place it directly vertical . Check the position of the joint at the other end of the shaft and the cross must be exactly the same . If it is off say 45 degrees then it has not been assembled properly. Now to explain it better . the ears of the gearbox yoke ( bit that has the 'U joint bearings in it) should be on top and underneath ---Vertical plane ---. That will place the ears of the shaft in the horizontal position now go to the rear end of that shaft and the ears of the shaft must be in the same plane . IF those eras are vertical ( the same as the gearbox yoke ) then it has to be pulled apart and rotated 90 degrees to be the same as the front of the shaft. Now the second shaft ( slip joint end and the diff end get the same treatment. So the slip joint yoke has to be in the same plane as the diff yoke. It all has to do with the shaft speeding up and slowing down as it rotates through the 90 degrees and the different "u" joint s speed up and slow down at different times so that one end cancels out the other and you have a vibration frees shaft. If you are still unsure go on the web and find a site the refers to drive shaft manufacture and problems and phasing

Vehicle shakes at 60 mph all wheels and struts replaced


Hello, Are the tires and wheels balanced? If they are balanced then check the drive shaft. This drive shaft transfer the power from the engine/auto transmission to the rear differential/rear wheel.
Now, on each end of the drive shaft is a flexible yoke, this splined yoke has a U-joint with four bearing cups. Two of the bearing cup is attached to the splined yoke and two are attached to the drive shaft. Now, on the rear differential end is a yoke but it has 4 bolts and nuts, it also will have a U-joint attached to the 4 bolted yoke and to other bearing cups attach to drive shaft. U-Joint is called "Universal Joint" Each U-joint has about 10 degree circular travel without any type of binding to the U-joints or the drive shaft.



Two things here. First, take a pry bar and wedge into the U-Joint and move the bar forwards, backwards, up and down. If the drive shafts moves in any direction and clanks. The u-joints need to be replaced and I would replace both of the U-joints. Secondly, if the U-joints aren't loose, then there is a good possibility that the drive shaft is out of balance. In other words, it has lost it small welded plats on the drive shaft and when you are drive you Chrysler the drive shaft is vibrating.



To replace the U-Joints and/or balance the drive shaft. You'll need to remove those 4 bolts and nuts on the differential yoke. Once the bolts are removed then push the drive shaft forward, it will slide forward. Now, under the transmission yoke place a pan/bucket/container to catch the transmission fluid that will drain out once the drive shaft is pull free from the transmission.



If you don't have a press, vise, brass 5 lb hammer, bushing, punches, then I would tackle this job of replacing these U-Joints. Without the proper tools, one can damage the U-joint yokes and the drive shaft. I wouldn't do this without the tools and experience. I use a cutting torch but I have been do it for 50+ years.



If the drive shaft is out of balance, then you will need to take to Drive Line Specialty Shop to have it balanced. Also, have them replace the U-Joints. They have all equipment to do this job. I wish you luck in your endeavor. GB....stewbison

How do I take off my drive shaft? When i accelerate, I hear a squeeking noise and i believe its my rear driveshaft. I need to take it off and bring it to a machine shop to get fixed but how do i take it...


There should be 4 bolts on the rear differential side of the driveshaft...remove these 4 bolts along with the c shaped saddles and put them aside where they won't get lost...the driveshaft will drop down..then all you need to do is pull the other end out of the transmission/transfer case. the transmission side has a splined shaft...don't worry about aligning it up when you get the d-shaft back from the ,mach shop..all you need to do to realign it is to jack up one side of the rear so the yoke on the differential will line up to the shaft ..make sure you block the wheels so the truck won't move. put everything back in reverse order as mentioned above...make sure the bolts on the rear saddles are tight(or else the driveshaft may come off)

    Crawl under the rear end and unbolt the universal joint retaining straps from the rear differential yoke.

  • 3

    Pull the drive shaft and universal joint away from the rear differential yoke by hand.

  • 4

    Remove the retaining rings that hold the universal joint into the drive shaft with needle-nose pliers.

  • 5

    Support the end of the drive shaft on a jack stand and place the socket extension against the universal joint cap in the drive shaft yoke. Tap the socket extension with the dead blow hammer until the universal joint cap comes out of the yoke.

  • 6

    Clean the sockets in the drive shaft yoke with the tip of a pocket screwdriver to remove any built up road dirt or other gunk.

  • 7

    Remove two of the caps from the opposite ends of the replacement universal joint. Be careful to keep the bearings in the caps.

  • 8

    Position the replacement universal joint in the drive shaft yoke and put the cap on the outside. Use the socket extension and dead blow hammer to tap the cap through the yoke far enough to expose the retaining ring groove. Put the retaining ring on that side with the needle-nose pliers. Repeat this for the other cap.

  • 9

    Move the drive shaft back up to the differential yoke, line up the new universal joint with the differential yoke and reinstall the universal joint retaining straps with the wrench. Lower the rear end off the jack stands with the floor jack.

    How do you get the rear u-joint out of the drive shaft on 2005 chevy avalanche


    It will need to be pressed out.

    Universal Joint: Service and Repair
    Nylon Injected Ring
    Universal Joint Replacement - Nylon Injected Ring
    ^ Tools Required
    - J 9522-3 U Joint Bearing Separator
    - J 9522-5 U Joint Bearing Spacer Remover
    Disassembly Procedure
    Notice: Never clamp propeller shaft tubing in a vise. Clamping could dent or deform the tube causing an imbalance or unsafe condition. Always
    clamp on one of the yokes and support the shaft horizontally. Avoid damaging the slip yoke sealing surface. Nicks may damage the bushing or cut
    the lip seal.
    1. Support the propeller shaft in a line horizontal with the table of a press.
    2. Mark the propeller shaft as to which end is the transmission end and which end goes to the rear axle.
    3. Place the universal joint so that the lower ear of the yoke is supported on a 30 mm (1 1/8 inch) socket.
    4. In order to shear the plastic retaining ring on the bearing cup, place J 9522-3 on the open horizontal bearing cups. Press the lower bearing cup out
    of the yoke ear.
    5. If you do not completely remove the bearing cup, lift the cross and insert J 9522-5 between the seal and the bearing cup you are removing.
    Continue to press the bearing cup out of the yoke.
    6. Rotate the propeller shaft. Press the opposite bearing cup out of the yoke.
    7. Mark the orientation of the slip yoke to the tube for proper reassembly.
    8. Remove the cross from the yoke.
    9. Remove the remaining universal joint parts from the yoke. If you are replacing the front universal joint, remove the bearing cups in the slip yoke
    in the same manner.
    10. Inspect the retaining ring grooves for plastic.
    11. Inspect the bearing cup bores in the yoke ears for burrs or imperfections.
    12. Clean the remains of the sheared plastic bearing retainers from the grooves in the yoke.
    13. The sheared plastic may prevent the bearing cups from pressing into place and thus prevent the bearing retainers from properly seating.
    Assembly Procedure
    1. Remove the bearing cups from the universal joint.
    2. Assemble 1 bearing cup part way into 1 side of the yoke.
    3. Turn the yoke ear toward the bottom.
    4. Assemble the cross into the yoke so the trunnion seats freely into the bearing cup.
    5. With the trunnion seated in the bearing cup, press the bearing cup into the yoke until the bearing cup is flush with the yoke ear.
    6. Assemble the opposite bearing cup part way into the yoke ear.
    7. Ensure that the trunnions start straight and true into both bearing cups.
    8. Press the opposite bearing cup into the yoke ear while working the cross all the time in order to inspect for a free unbinding movement of the
    trunnions in the bearing cups.
    Important: If there seems to be a hang-up or binding, stop pressing, and inspect the needle bearings for misalignment in the bearing cup.
    9. Press the bearing cup into the yoke until the bearing retainer groove clears the inside of the yoke.
    10. Assemble the bearing retainer in the retainer groove.
    11. Continue pressing until you can snap both retainers into place.
    12. If seating the retainer is difficult, spring the yoke slightly with a firm blow from a dead blow hammer.
    13. It may be necessary to lubricate the snap ring with a slight amount of chassis grease so the snap ring seats in the bearing cup groove.

    If you are talking about rear axle you will have to go to a driveline shop and have a new drive line made up. you will need a front yoke the tube and rear youke also if you lost the slider piece you will need it to and it will have to be balanced. If you need everything yor looking at about $300.00 to replace it or have one built, still half the cost of a new one. If this helped please rate.
