    I broke the spider gears in my 10 bolt, so when we made good use of the Warn 15000 we started back to the trailer with the front end pulling when we slung the front u-joint. It broke the ears off of the front driveshaft. I found a free driveshaft but it isn't a a "CV" will it work on my K5? I have 6"lift out front. Also I thought I would just pull the slip yolk apart and put the one on from the other drive shaft but I can't get it off, it slides out to the end then thats it. does anyone know how too get one of these apart? Thanks for the Help guys!!!!!

    I see where the the threads are on the yoke. do I need to lock the "c" part in a vise and spin the little part vise versa? thanks for the help I'm having a hard time getting these darn things apart!
