Re: Tiny 12 point bolts holding U joint on...ack!
well, when mine decide it was time to let go, I was going about 40 down the street...you talk about a wake up call!! I looked at all the parts stores around here, and wasn't satisfied with anything they had to offer. I went to the jeep dealer here and got the exact factory replacements. When I installed them, I put some locktite on the threads. this has been over a year now, and I check them often, and have not found any loose since then. I think the strap kit was about $7 a set from the dealer. Oh, I used a 5/16 12 point nut driver with a pair of vice grips fastened to the handle to get the bolts loose.....Ben
