Mark the shaft with a piece of chalk or something, front, rear, and rotation it's a good idea to try to get it back in the way it was. After you have the shaft out of the truck, you have to heat the yokes with a torch. The original joints have plastic injected into them to hold the cups in place you have to melt that out to get the joints apart. The new joints will come with snap rings to hold them in place. Once you have the plastic melted out support the shaft as close to the end as possible (be careful not to dent the shaft). Take a fairly good size chissle and hammer and pound on cross part of the old joint to force the cup out on opposite side. Repeat on all the cups, once you have the cups out clean all the rust and scale from the shaft bores. When you go to install the joints be sure you have the cross turned in such a way that you access the grease fitting (if that applies). What I do, is insert the cross into either the shaft or the yoke and carefully put on one new cap. Now, with a u-joint tool, vise, or big C-clamp push that cup in past where it would normally stop (1/4 inch past). By doing that you can get opposite cup started on the cross without messing up the neddle bearings. Now install the snap ring on the 1st cup and push the 2nd. cup into place and install the snap ring. Repeat on the rest.

Remove rear seat 1993 chevy 1500


I just took out my rear seat from my 1993 Cheyenne ext cab. Fold the back seat in the up position. There are 2 square stubs sticking out from each side that the hinge plates of the seat slip over. Take out the 5/8 bolt and washer securing the hinge plate to the stub--slide the seat assembly toward the rear of the cab--and lift up and out.
Once you have the right solution--it is a 5 minute job !!!

I have a 2001 chevy silverado pick-up, regular cab, with a tow/haul option. How much weight can I safely haul on the highway in the bed? GVWR is 6100 lb, 3686 lb on the rear, but what is the curb...


Here is a link to specs for that year model of truck, I would need more info such as auto/manual, and 4x4 or not. Anyway it's an easy chart to read. But technically speaking a 1/2 ton pickup is only rated to carry 1,000 lbs in the bed. I wouldn't personally suggest doing more than that, if you overload the bed you can have trouble steering and stopping. I hope this Helps please rate this thank you

I have a bad fuel pump and am going to replace it in my 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500. It is a Z71 Shortbed extended cab. I have read a couple of posts from different people who say it is easier to remove...


definitely easier to remove the bed....unless you like the taste of dirt :-)....round up 3-4 buddys and everyone grab a corner after the bolts, ground straps, and fuel filler are loose, pick it up and set it back a foot or two (on the tires and bumper). That'll give you plenty of room to work.
