You need to use a C-frame press... Harbor freight has them for about 40 bucks.. works like a charm... use that with a half inch drive ratchet or pneumatic impact and they will come right out.

Got the right size socket gotta go big?

I just did my 73 Charger & had them out in 2 beers.

Well it's a Heep so they are prolly peened over & wont fit.
Try to grind them on the sides to make sure they will fit thru.

They wouldnt be the old type u-joints that have that glue in them....you have to heat them up very hot and they pop, letting all the glue out a little hole....i had a set i couldnt figure out and they were glued like that.
