Question about 2006 Ford Ranger
On the rear joint.mark the driveshaft to the pinion flange,before removeing the drive shaft. To place back in original position.
Remove the u joint cap retainers. Spray some lube on the tops of the caps,for ease of removeing from the shaft ilets. Use a vice or a c clamp tool to press out the caps.Remove the caps from the new u joint.Careful not to lose any of the small needle bearings.Remove any rust that may interfere with the caps, as they are a tight fit, at the cleanest condition. Place the u joint into the opening of the drive shaft.if it has a greese fitting turn it outward to the end of the shaft or one may not be able to greese it.put one cap on the u joint, and hold the u joint inside the cap while tapping the cap down into the ilet hole of the shaft,being careful not to loose or dis locate any needle bearings.Once the cap is down in the ilet hole far enough,or about 1/4 inch too far,then place in the cap on the otherside.press the last cap all the way in which moves both caps,center the caps,so you can place in the retainer rings.The caps need be centered perfectly. On the front joint mark the slip yoke to the shaft for maintaining the original position this may cause a vibration in the drive line.And you will need to redue the joint.
