Fix front wheel universal on full size chevy truck

Remove the tire, brakes, and rotor.Remove the bolts for the bearing and the bearing. pull the axle out threw the hole. Look at the universal, how it is held in. You have clips, remove them. Factory ones are held with plastic. You have to burn this plastic out of the carriers. Then press the U joints out and back in. New U joints come with clips.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    How to replace universal joints

    I know that I have addressed this. From under the car, remove the 4 nuts that hold the 2 "U" clamps on the rear universal joint. Pull the drive shaft out of the transmission tail section and remove the U joint from there - the same way. Now, with caution not to lose the needle bearings in the U joint caps, install the new U joints and snug the bolts down to about 35 Ft Lbs of torque.

    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.
