    U-Joint Install

    I changed my front spider on the u-joint (front diff side) yesterday and today I have noticed that grease fitting assembly hole/zerk are not facing in the correct direction per the FSM. Is this going to cause a problem? or do I need to re-do it again?? Thanks for all your help as usual.

    Type of U-Joint

    Thanks Tools - I think the groan noise I am hearing is coming from the front passenger side...Also I noticed the rig wonders on the highway to the left a bit….oddly enough I had serviced the bearings 2 weeks ago on this side (Only Repack) and replaced the outer and inner on the driver sides as...

    Type of U-Joint

    Thanks Beno - So I will work on replacing the spider only at this point. Why throw parts at it and I would rather save the $150 if the part is not broken. Hey Rick - I hope you are doing well and I am sorry to hear that you are on Short Term Disability. Considering all the work load you have...

    Type of U-Joint

    Thanks Birfmark - But I am also still getting a groaning noise type with a slight vibrations as soon as I hit 40 Miles/Hour and stays with me at all speeds thereafter, so the only logical thing that I have not touched or ever changed since new is the U-joint (over 125K on the ODO now) Keep in...

    Type of U-Joint

    Thanks beno - I am only going to replace the one in the front that goes to the diff. Is this going to be an issue if I only do one of them??? The reason I am doing this is that I am getting a front noise even after the outer and inner bearings were replaced on the DS and serviced (repack...

    Please help me identify this part

    Guys, I am really concerned about this. If this is a part of an inner axle seal like you are stating then why would it be out of the rig and the only work I have done is remove the rotor to replace the bearings?? Do you have a picture of the Inner Axle seal and where does it go? The...

    By the way I am referring to the Oil Seal that goes on the back of the rotor after you have installed the bearing...is this the seal you are referring to as well??

    Live time: How do you seperate the Front Hub from the Rotor

    Thanks Coax---I need to replace the races as I have seen a score on the outer bearing race so I decided to replace the races and the bearings at the same time. Also are you saying just use PB balster and try to separate them....if so should I try and wedge a screw driver in between to do so ??
