Double Cardan U-Joint...Removal?

Hi all,

I had other intentions on fixing up my Jeep, but now I'm just fixing it. I had a bad squeal comming from under my ride. Took out the front drive shaft to learn that the noise went away. Inspected the Double Cardan U-joint and noticed the the center ball seal and such were a mess.

I tried following several write-ups on the removal process such as:
http://www.stu-offroad.com/axle/driv...iveshaft-5.htm
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/cv-driveshaft-rebuild-part-deux-345170/

I can't seem to remove the first u-joint from it's location. Can someone please help shed some light here. I've used a 19mm socket to try to hammer it out after removing the retaining clips. Do I have to some how remove the caps before it can be removed from it's housing? I'm worried I 'll wreck the u-joint trying to remove the center ball. I know having the right tool for the job helps, but others have done this with just a hammer and socket???

Thanks in advance!

Thanks! So I can just pound on the cap to push it through? It seems that the part that mates up with the TC mounting gets in the way to let the pin travel through. It's almost out on the side i've been hitting. but do I just try to pull it out once one side is free?

Thanks again...

LOL...yes the shaft is removed. I'm talking about the piece that would mate to the TC if it were mounted. It seems to get in the way for full travel of the pin as it hits against the housing...
