U Joints

Alright, i knew the time was comin' but i think before I can get out there again and do some serious wheelin' its time for new u joints. I REALLY dont want to pay a million bucks to have some schmuck change em' for me. Anyone in the Portland OR area have experience with this and be willing to teach me how to do it?

good clip,

but not as easy as that. The spring clips will be more fiddly. And really not that easy with a hammer.

I suggest using sockets in a vise to push the U joint through.
