    just a tip but you dont need to take the axle nut off to replace the u-joints. just pull the 3 bolts on the back of the hub and replace the u joints with the hub on, its a little heavier, but it saves you a stub shaft. and im speaking from experience.

    I was thinking about doing it like that. I did that two years ago when I dod the ball joints. I thought it might be to hard to get at the u joint with the hub attached. Maybe I'll try it. save me from buying a socket.
