Pretty sure U joints

Pretty sure it's my U joints that are out. Regardless, with 300K original miles I wanna do em anyway. The PROBLEM is idk how to do it
I've looked up online but only found ball joint procedures. I've dropped the drive shaft before and reinstalled fine. I've also got a Ford repair manual CD and it tells me but it's not entirely clear. Just wanted to check with you guys first.

you need to strip everything down till you have just the steering knuckles, before you can remove the axle shafts, its also a good idea to replace all 6 seals at this time, the yellow o-ring for the wheel bearing/hubs, the big wheel seal/axle seal, and the dust seal/small wheel seal, you will need to make your own seal driver to install the axle seal, not very hard to do, some write up for the ball joints, shows how to make one

Matter........excellent link! I bookmarked it I've done them on my FJ40, but it is a flange deal, not a yoke. If anything, these should be easier. It does mention the matchmark which is very important. I also mark the slip yoke just in case it comes apart.
