    Default U joint replacement

    I need to replace the u-joint that is in the H-yoke on the front of my transfercase. How hard is this to do and should I just replace them all since I'll be under the jeep.

    Yes replace them all. I learned that the hard way when I replaced the one in the front of the driveshaft then the back one went bad. For some reason I don't know where the H-yoke is, but usually for me the hardest part of replacing a u-joint is just getting the part exposed to work on.

    since you in the middle of double carden, you might as well replace the little roller yoke. it looks like a pinion yoke with no whole in it.

    Thanks for the help..........it sounds like there is a midget underneath my jeep all ready going to town on it. Have you ever replaced the roller yoke.
