Re: I Found a Shop That Can Replace WK U-Joints…

the pups thought the yolk was a snack.
then installed the aluminum half.
i used the c clamp to keep the caps tight to the joint wile i centered the assembly.

Re: I Found a Shop That Can Replace WK U-Joints…

alright... 1/50th of the battle, I am not a welder (not really by choice) but I would guess your going to run into some issues getting good welds on the steel caps to the aluminum portion of the driveshaft... obviously correct me if I am wrong.

Re: I Found a Shop That Can Replace WK U-Joints…

then took a sharp point punch and kinda smashed over some of the aluminum to hold the caps in.
had to grind the little hump down so the grease gun will fit on the zerk still will have to pull the rear end to grease it but its only 4 bolts

Not so much a vibration (yet), but more of a howling noise.

I figured the parts yard would be the way to go. The jeep shop I was at said the driveshafts were on national backorder! (Oct. 2012)
