Remove rear joint u bolt nuts then remove bolts. Slide shaft ahead. make sure you mark shaft in order to replace it the same way. Remove the shaft. Take sir clips out , use a punch & knock the bearing cup out one way then the other. replace in the same order.

Rear end noise, shaking

Check the rear driveshaft u-joints. Most likely the rear u-joint at the differential is seized/seizing. May here a rotational squeaking at low speeds. If you want to check it yourself. Remove the rear driveshaft and move the u-joint in each direction and check for tightness. Do so with both ends. Let me know how it works out for ya!

When replacing a u-joint should the grease fitting face forward or back. I'm working on the drive shaft of a 1974 Ford Maverick.

The grease fitting should face the rear if replacing the trans. u-joint and forward if replacing the diff. u-joint.

I had a squeaking noise coming from the rear of my truck when i started to accelerate after braking at a stop sign i replaced the pads, go the rotors reglazed and replaced the drivers side rear caliper...

Sounds like a ujoint is frozen in the rear driveshaft.Remove the rear driveshaft(block the wheels so it does not roll on to you).check the joints,there should be no play and you should have very little resistance when rotating the joint.It is most likely the joint at the rear axle.

Is there any grease fittings on the front and rear

There should be some on the front end steering linkage, and some on the drive shaft front and rear, there is none on the rear end.

My u joint broke and right before my rear end shuttered now after replacing u joint truck wont move but tows just fine

Try jacking up the whole back end, disconnect the u-joint and see if you can move the rear end by turning the tires and turning the input shaft of the rear end. If the rear end is free you most likely have a problem with your transmission or transfer case. One of those could have locked up, locking up your rearend making it feel like a shudder in the rearend, then breaking the weak link between the two (the u-joint). Hope this helps.

98 gmc sonoma w 2 pc drive shaft 2wd noise from rear u joint and vibration at 40mph and up. have replaced u joints and carrier bearing. rear ball and socket were dry and rusty.

remove the rear shaft from a 1990 full size gmc van (g-van) make sure the one you select has the scew on sleeve at the front of the rear section of the shaft
this will be the right lenght
take the rear yolk off your old shaft cut of the ball socket now get the same u-joint your truck calls for and mount the rear yolk (the section of the shaft that bolts to your rear end) to the new shaft
this works ive done it
you eliminate 2 of the 4 u-joints and lighten up your shaft this releives strain on you tranny and rear end when these u-joints and ball bearings fail they cause the vibrations which ruin the rest of your drive train also you gain 10hp
i spent 300 bucks rebuilding the OEM shaft and got no where so for 25 bucks i did this
