    Why is this thing being such a biotch to take apart? I've done them before, but it's been awhile. Anybody got any tips for me? Thanks guys...

    is it stock and unmolested? or has it been rebuilt previously? the reson i ask is the easiest way i've found on stock joints with stock sealed ujoints. is to heat the crap outta each cap. i melts the retaining plastic and when the grease starts to boil it pushes the caps out of the yokes. If it has been rebuilt, it should n't be any harder than removing the c-clips and pushing the caps out one at a time. Push one side in till the other comes out then turn it over and push back the other way. or are you haveing soem other problem?

    That's the problem I'm having...It won't push out the opposite way at all!
    I soaked it with PB Blaster last night, so I'm gonna give it another shot now, and I'll let ya know how it goes.

    Typical of my Blazer, when the blaster don't cut it, beat on it till it comes off.
