Do It Yourself U-joint Replacement

Painless Axle Shaft U-Joint Changing

Changing front axle shaft U-joints, what could be simpler? If you are asking that question you have obviously never dealt with severely rusted joints from an older street driven Jeep that's never been in 4wd and has an open knuckle front end. Many a Jeeper has discovered that newly acquired Jeep that has 'never been off-road' equals rusted front axle shaft U-joints that are thoroughly seized into the shafts as well.

The question of the easiest way to change those U-joints at home is a common one for the new owner of a vintage CJ5 or CJ7, so I'll give my explanation of the best way that I've see that doesn't involve expensive tools. I saw this done by Ken Niles of Ken's 4x4 and tried it myself after seeing how easy it was. I've tried a variety of other methods in the past including the 'hammer and sockets' method and using a 20-ton press, but over the last two years I'm convinced that the method I'm about to describe is the best for a home shop.

I’ll take metal....

Crushed Gas Can

Four wheeling involves a vehicle with capabilities enhanced by modifications to suit the owners preference.  One of the more popular modifications involves an external tire mounting rack that includes holders for extra gas or water.There have been many changes to the standard GI style containers over the years in the name of safety and pollution control.  While metal is still primary, plastic is growing in popularity.  Personally, I’ll take metal.  

As evident by the picture at right, metal has a certain durability.  The pictured gas can is full and was mounted on external on a Garvin Industries Wilderness series rack.  The metal material survived the weight of a jeep while the holder was bent beyond recognition.

Granted, this is (or was) a new gas can and the seams remained intact.  It is debatable whether an old metal can would have stayed intact.  I am convinced that a plastic gas container would have ruptured spraying gas in a large area creating a potentially dangerous situation.I’m convinced, I’ll take metal.
