    Can anyone tell me how hard it is to replace the u-joints in a CV joint on my front driveshaft? It's on my '77 K5 with a NP205.

    It's not to bad. Just 2 u-joints that need to be pressed in and out. The Locator ball (you will see what I mean once it;s out of the truck. there is a ball and socket in the cage theat make it work) in the center you have to pay attention to when you assemble and make sure the ball in the center is lining up. Also those balls can wear out and need replacement. Driveline man here owns a shop and he can probably help you is you need any parts or better advice.
