Ok... I got the pin out.... darn near fell out.... and I have the driveshaft out. Looks like the U-joint is kit a tad to big to go out the end of the drive shaft ball/U-joint housing. I think my spare is way better than the one That's in there. Is there a bit I'm missing, or shouldn'tbit be easy to just pull out, after the pin, and driveshaft has been oulled?

Easier to remove when still on the drive shaft as the circular halves of the u-joint stay concentric with the bell housing.

Now loose inside you will have to fittle both sides to aline with each other for a straight pull out.

Lol.. great! The axle book doesn't say anything about it. Maybe mine is egged out enough, it won't fit any longer...

Thanks!
