Be careful when you pull your skid plate to access the T/C case when you remove your drive shaft. The skid plate is actually what supports your T/C case. You'll have to support the T/C with a jack before you begin to remove your skid plate.
Also, if your skid plate hasn't been off for a while, put the PB Blaster to the bolts. I had a heck of a time busting them loose until I put the PB to them. They actually even had locktite on them, making it even more of a pain.
Hey Jerry, I had my tires balanced and rotated the same day I replaced my u-joints. After all said and done, I now have a very slight vibration I am feeling in my seat. Before anything was done, I had a vibration in the steering wheel and the front end. That's what prompted me to get them balanced and rotated.
Obviously, I will take the jeep back and have the tire shop re-balance the back tires first to see if the vibration goes away, but my question for you is....Do you think that vibration could be coming from the work I performed while replacing the u-joints? It was a pretty simple process, just a pain in the butt, as replacing u-joints usually are.
