Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I checked NAPA website, depending on engine size, trans, etc u joint should be approx. $30. I would think a good garage could do it in an hour. To try and determine if this is the problem you can do the following: Block the front wheels securely, jack up the back of truck (rear wheels off the ground) put truck in neutral (not running!) get underneath locate u joint (it's at the end of driveshaft and in front of the rear axle). Grab onto it with both hands, try to move it back and forth. Depending how bad it is, you should be able to notice some wobble, or play at the u joint. If your truck is full time 4x4, you will not be able to check it this way. Truck should be out of 4X4 to check this way. Grease all the lube points on the suspension twice a year, this will prevent stuff like this wearing out quickly. (some u joints are sealed and can't be greased)A repair manual will show you all the lubrication points, type of grease to use etc for about $20 good luck! countrycurt0
