rear driveshaft

I have to change my u-joints they are starting to squeak, does anybody know if all 3 are the same size, also getting moog's with grease zerks. If anybody knows the part #'s would be deeply appreciated.How mush of a pain in the azz is it,I've changed many in older vehicle's but never a 2 piece.

Thanks Chris

I would have it done at a shop and also do the carrier they will check balance and it makes life easier IMHO all you do is drop it and re install it to save $$

I would also use Spicer not Moog

Hey thanks for the reply,I only got 64 thousand on it, doubt the carrier is bad driveline angle looks perfect and why spicer not moog, as long as it has a grease zerk.

64k is low for any failure so if the u joint went I would do them all and be done

I am at 92 k and am getting ready to do the same

I have a press and all that but the shaft is a pain to hold in the press so I don't mind paying to have it done and balanced


lots of Guys Avoid MOOG while not the worst Spicer is way Better and u can get them with a Zerk also

Do you have the spicer part #'s of hand, I don't have traction bars yet, it's from axle wrap, you can see it's the rear/pinon joint, the 1 seal has a crack in it also slight driveline vibration between 65 to 75.

No sorry I don't have the part #

I used to Let Me look but honestly My drive line service place is going to supply mine so I didn't keep the #'s handy

I didn't run traction bars for the first 55k miles and my joints are still ok I am just doing preventive maintenance
