Drive Shaft Bolt Removal

Postby Red0ktober » Fri Jan 01, 2010 9:40 pm

I'm trying to get the front drive shaft off my parts Trooper (front diff, already off the tranny), I can't find a good angle on those bolts for a socket, and end wrenches just don't give me the grip and leverage. Any tips?

Well, I didn't get the drive shaft off the parts truck. I'd still like to do that, but in the meantime I did get the one on mine phased properly which I think may have been my problem. I won't know until I can get up to 30-35 MPH in 4wd. Maybe we'll get some snow and ice next week.

I was wrestling with my tranny a couple years back and accientally yanked the slip yoke apart. I didn't put it back in right. I thought it was out of balance, but I was just googling a bit today and found out about the phase of the u-joints. Mine were out of phase.
