Question about Chevrolet Blazer
I have done it many,many times and i will tell you how i do it!!!! it will take a little patience and muscle and a few tools.... #1. once you have the drive shaft out and out from under the car/truck you will need a couple pieces of 2x4 or 2x6 or 2x8 ect.to set the shaft on,but let the yolk/shaft(end of shaft with u-joint) hang off the end of the 2x4.... #2. you will need to pull the c-clips/retaining clips off the u-joint caps(some are on top of cap and some on bottom).... #3. next you will need an old socket that will fit on top of the cap ,but smaller than the yolk/shaft cap opening so it will go thru fixed circle holding cap... #4. now for that patience and muscle part. using a 5-pound mini sledge hammer(small hammer will work also) and the socket,hold the socket on top of the u-joint cap (don't matter which side)and beat the cap down until the cap on the other side falls out( depending on how old they are it can take many ,many hits to remove),then flip it over and using the socket put it on the u-joint shaft and beat the opposite side cap out.then you will be able to remove the two pieces... #5. repeat same process for the shaft/yolk side... To install the new u-joint carefully pull 2 caps off (opposite ends)and run tape around other 2 (to keep from falling off) insert new u-joint shafts into yolk/shaft and lightly tap new cap in one side then lightly tap other cap in ( make sure the needle bearings in cap are standing up and have not fell out or over in cap) and repeat again for the other 2 caps.....sounds like alot but once you get one cap out it gets easyer with each cap....and thats how you change a u-joint....good luck...yz-maniac.
