A bad ujoint needs to be replaced but will not make the wheels fall off. The stub shaft is connected to the unit bearing by that big *** 36mm nut, the unit bearing is then bolted to the knuckle and the wheel is bolted to the unit bearing, unless there's some major unexplainable physics at work the wheel cannot fall off because of a bad ujoint. You can physically separate the ujoint and pull the inner shaft completely out and still get your rig home.
