U-Joint removal - best way
Posted 22 July 2002 - 07:33 AM
My 88 Gl Wagon has bad u-joints all over the rear drive shaft. My trusty Chilton's and Haynes manuals show them being held in by snap rings, however they seem to be staked or "peened" in instead. What's the best way to remove these. I have considered grinding the stakes down - also just forcing out the u-joint and then smoothing the stake marks after.
Has anyone dealt with these things before?

I bought the u-joints for $48 CDN each, and my Dad installed them for me. They come as a kit with instructions, snap rings and grease fittings included. IIRC, Dad used the BFH method on a vise...'cause the instructions said so!
