    my first question was to buying from auto parts store not RCV.

    thanks I'll probably give that a shot. I've razor bladed and cleaned that area so much before and it always seems like it holds great but then like 6 months later BAM it falls..

    You'd be a lot cooler if you could buy that for both of us. What do you replace yours with, sir?

    hahaha sorry!!! I don't even have a spare at the moment, and I'm 100% positive the CVs have never been replaced in this truck.

    good to have one, even if its a cheap one, to get you home in case it (when it) happens :thumbsup:

    I did a ujoint a few weeks ago, (spicer 5-1330-1X) rear one on the rear shaft. lost its zerk (smashed it off somewhere) long time ago. was squeaking bad, and had a vibe. that thing was dry and toasty. took care of the squeak and the vibe.

    used one of these, helped tremendously, bought off ebay for like 45 bux I think

    Can't help you with the mirror. But take off vibes are commonly drive line angle.

    Get under your truck and shake the drive shaft around. It shouldn't move side to side or up and down where the u joints are. It will move around at the carrier, but shouldn't anywhere else.

    Ohhhh 10-4. Im going with a froze up u joint. The only way u can check if its froze is to take your driveshaft off and try to move it. Driveshaft only takes a few mins to take off. Make everything really well so u can put it back in the EXACT same location.

    Was playing around on Ventusky and looks like there may be another disturbance pop up behind Jose next weekend. Way too far out to know if it will build up into anything but still kind of scary to think of 3-4 in this short time frame.
