I've replaced all of mine. easily. but the front joint in the front drive shaft doesn't fit right. I have play and it's causing a clicking and a massive vibration... any ideas? cause I'm just about to shim this damn thing. I've went to there different stores and a dealer and none fit right. I'm thinking the knuckle is messed up. but I'm wondering if anyone else is having these problems

And yes they do make different size joints. Make sure you got the right one.

When you swear that it hides away about 40 horse power while its dirty.....then you wash it and it wants to run so smooth!
