Front U-Joint HELP!!

I have a 87 YJ that needs the front U joints replaced. Can anyone give me some idea exactly how to go about replacing them? I have an idea but not sure what is all involved. Thanks

Buy a manual. Good thing to own, step by step procedures. Even pics. Haynes,or chilton.

I agree to buying a manual, never know what will go next.

Get a book for sure but a few tools that will come in handy are a old socket slightly smaller than the u-joint cup and a socket large enough for the cup to fit inside, a bench vice and a BFH. Be careful to not miss and snap the end of the axle shaft off that holds the u-joint cup........ like I did.
