Does the entire axle have to be replaced? Also when In park on flat ground you can push the vehicle back and forth about an inch or so. I'm no expert but that doesn't seem right. Help PLz lol
Sent from my iPhone using JeepForum so it probably looks goofy.
You could budge mine probably an inch or so with no p-brake set. Can with many vehicles.
There is a few ways of splitting a u joint, but youtube some videos, will help ya out. I'm no pro but I know it's out there.
"washing it inside and out is on my to-do, eventually, maybe, if I have time, OOOH angle grinder."
