SOURCE: universal joint needs to be replaced

If you have never done one it isn't real easy. You might want to remove your driveshaft and take it to a shop or a machine shop. If you remove the shaft they won't charge you much to install the joint. I can tell you how to change it with a vice, hammer and some kind of torch if you want to do it yourself.

How to remove upper ball joint on driver side of an 1994 GMC Sonoma


The OEM ball joint is riveted into the upper control arm. There are two possible ways to replace the joint. You can purchase the entire upper control arm/ball joint assembly, which comes complete with the upper control arm bushings. This part costs about $150.00. You will also have to deal with the coil spring when replacing it this way. You can also buy just the ball joint for about $30.00. This will require that you drill out the rivets of the original ball joint and then bolt in the replacement with the bolts that are provided with it. The 2WD and 4WD versions are the same. See this link.

How to replace a hanger bearing in a 2002 gmc sonoma


I\'ve never heard of hanger bearing. Where is it located. Are you talking about the carrier bearing. The carrier bearing is somewhat of pain if you don\'t have the right tools. If it\'s the carrier bearing your talking about you need to rent or buy a bearing puller and hopefully you have air impact but it\'s still possible without. Well let me know where this bearing is and i can help you out more.

Replace the u joints and carrier bearings for a 92 GMC Sonoma and now has a vibrations


When you removed the drive shaft, did you properly mark the shaft where it comes apart at the carrier bearing? This joint telescopes and usually must be separated to get the carrier bearing on/off. If you reassemble the shaft 180 degrees out (most shafts can go back together two ways), you will throw the driveshaft out of balance. The vibrations will be felt from almost the instant you start moving. You will need to drop the shaft and reassemble the shaft back to its original position.

Carrier baring


1) Flat level surface, chock the front tires.

2) Jack the rear up just until the tires clear.
USE jack stands. (DO NOT EVER just depend on a jack)

3) Remove the rear bolts holding the rear U-joint in.
Carefully use a tool to pry one of the U-joint cups, until the U-joint comes loose. DO NOT drop the cups off. Keep one hand wrapped around the cups as you pry the U-joint loose.

When U-joint is removed, suggest use black plastic electrical tape, and tape across the two cups, so they do not drop off.

[GOOD time to see if they are dry, and the U-joint is in good condition. DO NOT loose needle bearings ]

4) Remove the bolts that hold the Carrier Bearing Support to frame.
(Put the nuts back on a few threads of the bolts, after putting them back through the holes, in the Carrier Bearing Support strap. This way you won\'t lose them)

Lay the Support strap, and rubber aside.

5) Slide the driveshaft out of the back of the tranny. (Transmission)
It would be a real good idea to go to an auto parts store first, and rent a plug tool for the back of the tranny, once you remove the driveshaft. Keeps the tranny fluid from leaking out. Manual or automatic. (It is plastic, and a cheap rental)

The rear half-driveshaft slips out of the front one.
BEFORE removing make a mark on the front half-driveshaft, and a matching mark on the rear half-driveshaft. The driveshaft is a Balanced unit. Should be put back together the same way, it was taken apart.

Take the driveshaft with the carrier bearing on it to a shop, so they can press the old one off, and the new one on.

Reverse your steps.

1995 GMC SONOMA makes a loud sqeaking noise when i take off in the first to third gear, after third gear it stops, but when i get to a stop sighn it starts all back over, loud noise.


This type of noise is likely to be a universal joint that is worn out in the drive line. have a shop put it on a lift and inspect the joints.
