    Look harder. If the ujoint is an internal clip style, clean it really well and at the inside of the yoke ear you will see it. pry it out with a screwdriver(safety glasses). If you happen to have the nylon style, I just knock the caps out with a socket and a hammer.

    Go ahead and ask. This is CK5 not pir**e. We help each other here. When you put the ujoints back in, dont forget the clip on the side that goes on the axle. I had a driveshaft fall out while doing 70 mph 2 hours from home.
