You'll need a bench vice for this. A few sockets help as well. Once you get the shaft off the truck, put a smaller diameter socket on one side and a much larger diameter socket on the other and sandwich in a vice. Compress vice to drive the U-Joint through shaft (smaller socket will drive the one side through the other with the much larger socket). Installation is the reverse of removal.

Have tire balance checked, and also have the steering and suspension components(tie rods, ball joints) checked. Could also be a shifted belt in the tire, this will show up during tire balancing.

What a/c system did the 1988 gmc s15 pickup use? do i need to worry about messing with freon?

it used r-12 and the system should be evacuated, different oil put into the system and new fittings installed on the low and high pressure ports, then filled with 134a-use a little less than what the r12 capacity calls for as well.

2005 gmc seirra vibration around 50 mph

It sounds like a bad U-joint to me. The only way to properly check u-joints is by removing the driveshaft. The joint should move freely, any binding will cause the vibration.

Can't figure out how to remove the old upper ball joint for the a arm how would i do it?Also where is the idler arm located on the same vehicle. The vehicle is a 93 gmc jimmy s15

I get the feeling you have never done this kind of work before. If you need to know where things are,leave it to a repair shop. Would love to teach you but do not have vehicle.
