    Trying to remove the front half of the front driveshaft to change the ujoint, and she won't come at all. Extends almost all the way then stops.. I thought these came apart into two pieces, am I wrong..

    I tried to pull the shaft off with the highlift to no avail...

    Any ideas whats going on??

    Thanks

    THere is a sleeve on the end of the female part of the slip joint that you have to unscrew to separate the two halves of the driveshaft.
