Re: U-joint

Be carefull with those [email protected]#@# clips! You may want to use your old ones. Make sure the joint is free to move, but no play. Don't bind the axle, and especially do not install one that is very tight, or even tight at all. Cut those dam rubber seals off before you take the joint out, they get in the way and can make it very hard to take off. Just rip'em off! Make sure to line the drive shaft splines back up right if you seperate the 2 halves.. It'll prob take atleast 1 or 2 hours, but do it right! Grease them a few times for the first like 10 miles..

got zook?
