want to replace the u joints on my truck, truck is a like an old jalopy at the present.
I've never replaced u joints before so I want to start with the front driveshaft so at least I can drive the truck without it being in 4wd.
Then I thought, what's at the front diff input and transfer case output after I pull the DS? I'm assuming I don't want those parts exposed too long to the winter elements?
Is driving without a drive shaft only recommend to diagnose issue? Or can I realistically drive for a while without a drive shaft?
Oh and how much would it be to pay a shop to replace a u joint?
