    its a pain it the A$$ is you don't have a press. you need to either heat the caps up to melt the plastic holding them in or press them out. plus its easier to press the caps in while holding everything else other than having a helper hold the stuff while you beat it in. just my opinion /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Well, Im back. It wasnt bad. I do have a press, and had a helper of a sorts. The only issue was that I busted the H coupler trying to get the first u-joint out of it. So, I had to strip apart my spare which hadnt been apart before. I heated the caps, and got the plastic out and everything went together pretty good. Now I can put the shaft on tomorrow and will be back to fully operational 4WD! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
