front passenger, u joint

hi all, I think I have diagnosed a repeated, speed depending clicking noise to front passenger u joint. never did this before, have a couple questions.

how long can I drive it with a in need replacement? Can I drive on it another 3 weeks until I have some time off to deal with it?

second, will this work for my 93?:

Original Replacement Parts 8136616 - Front Axle 260X Series U-Joint Assembly for 76-86 Jeep® CJ & 87-94 Jeep® Wrangler YJ Front Axle - Quadratec

don't need anything for wheeling, just a cheep fix to get her on the road.

I have hammer, needle nose pliers, vice that opens to 8 inch mouth, and sockets. Anything else I need other than that part listed above?

lastly, I think I have to take the drive shaft out do to that correct?

thanks in advance,

Call Quadratec for the correct application (to make sure you get the correct one the first time). You may need a slide hammer to get the hub assembly off the steering knuckle without separating the barrings sometimes they can be a booger & they are expensive (about 120$ give or take for a decent one).
