Question Front axle U-Joints

How do you change the u joints in the front axle? Have rebuild the front and rear shaft but have another squeak. Just need to know what to expect. 02 Saraha D30/D35

Well you take stuff off til you can slide the axles out? Its pretty simple if you've done the driveshaft u-joints then you shouldnt have too much trouble with the axles. I managed to get the axles out without taking off the hub bracket but thats about the only tricky part to the whole thing

I've got a ton of play in mine...what kind of labor should I expect if I pay somebody to do this? I don't have a good selection of tools laying around to do it myself.

Post #2 in a similar thread going on today gives that information...
When you have a choice, buy American.
