It is, they are epoxied in now. Not much you can do now. I been turning wrenches a long time. I ruined a yoke trying to replace one. You can burn the epoxy out with a torch and then do it like a regular u-joint. but the new ones are the same sometimes and have to be spun to center them. Only a driveshaft shop has the eqpt.

How would i know if my cv joint is going bad on my 94 ford ranger 2 wheel drive

A two wheel drive ranger does not have any c.v. Joints. It does have u joints in the rear drive shaft. Worn out u joints can cause vibrations at highway speeds, squeezing noises at low speeds, and in some cases a clunking noise when the transmiissin is placed in park or drive. You can check them by pulling the drive shaft and ratting the joint. If it is stiff or loose than they are likely bad. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Sqeaking noise comming from drive shaft rear main u joint bearing?

Sounds like the universal joint is either worn and/or there is no grease in the jount. Check the joint for wear by holding one side of joint and trying to twist shaft on other side. If no apparent wear you can dismantle joint, repack with wheel bearing grease and reassemble. Easiest option would be to replace universal joint complete while it is apart.

Back shaft front universal joint squeeking - bad gas mileage - what looks like plastic insert pins, new universals have c- clips - is there a grove for the new c-clips? just melt out the plastic pins? dont...

you have to heat the plastic inserts with a propane torch until it all comes out. than you can knock the u-joint out and replace it with a new one using c clips.

I am changing the whole rear end on my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Replacing it with the same type I'm removing. It looks pretty simple. Is there anything I need to watch for or do?

Make sure the driveshaft is wired up.All brake lines are capped to stop air getting in.Replace the diff oil and make sure it has the friction modifier in it or that you add it to the oil.(200ml).Check for axle seal leaks.Its also a very good time to replace the universal joint at the rear.If you don't,at least relube the uni.DON,T let the needle bearing caps come apart. if the car is on a hoist,allow at least 3 hours to do the job and time it so if you do need to get some parts,the parts shops are open(bearings,seals etc.)Hope this helps

How do I change rear universal joints on two piece axle

The universals are glued in and will need to be heated in order to remove the glue. I use a propane torch to heat the area where the caps to the joints are melting the glue. Mark the shaft so it will be aligned properly before disassembly(spray paint a line on it down the lenght). Then press the joints out. Clean any residual glue off the ends of the shaft, there will be grooves for lock rings supplied with the new joints to fit in, clean them. Realign the shaft and press the new joints in. Some auto parts stores will rent/lend and u-joint press or you can take the shaft to a shop and have the joints pressed in for a fee. Call first and make arrangements.

Broken Universal Joint

There is a strap around both joint end caps on the differential end. unbolt them and then unbolt the flange that holds it onto the transfer case. Mark the slide joint at the center so you can put the two halves back together if it comes apart, (must be exact)
You can find instructions for doing joint replacement in any decent manual (some are as little as $20) It's not terribly difficult (I've done one five miles back in the woods with basic hand tools...Yes...i carry an extra in my box of emergency stuff at all times!!)
good luck!!
