Rear driveshaft u joint help!

I need the part number for my rear drive shaft u joint! I have a spicer on right now but looks like it broke and now makes clinking noises and vibrates like crazy! Can someone tell me the exact part number to replace it?
It's just a regular SE 2.4 tj with 33s and 4 inch lift.. Thanks

The problem now is that the darn ujoint is super stuck and I'm sure I'll be needing a press, which I don't have... Lol

A vise works well to press it out. Place a socket just larger than the bearing cap on one side for the old bearing cap to move in to, and place and another socket just smaller than the bearing cap on the other side to press it out with.

Never done it but bet a big c clamp using Jerry's method would work if you don't have a vise.

Okay guys I did it the good old way with hammer and sockets. Now before I put my shaft back on, should grease the part that goes into the transfer case?

Yes, smear a bit of grease on the slip joint's splines.

That is the AC compressor. Not power steering. But your pump may be above dripping. Look into it further.

ah ha! It is an ac compressor. It's the hose that is leaking from the metal tube that connects to the compressor. It has a crack and when the jeep is on it's leaking oil, looks to me like power steering oil. And when I turn it off it's just air flowing out.. There goes another trip to napa
*power steering FLUID
Not oil lol
