I\'m a freaking IDIOT Ok I have no problem whatsoever admitting this to you guys!!!!!!!!!!! While waiting for answers on the 700r4 question, I went outside and started replacing me you joints. First one went on smooth as silk. Second one the needle bearings fell inside and would not let the cap go on all the way. Now it is a two piece shaft and I was pounding on it trying to get the new joint out(because the needle bearing thing) And I busted the darn drive shaft I brokwe it where the ball joint would be pressed it on the top of the circle just where I sure it gets the most stress! I always try to save myself some money by doing it Myself, but always cost me more money or hardship. I have an arc welder can I weld the crack(it goes all teh way through) or do I need to hit the salvage yards for a new drive shaft?
