    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has replaced a yoke or the seal before. Is it an easy job where all I have to do is unbolt the center nut on the yoke and slide it off and put on a new one, or is it more complex than that?

    Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    That's about it. Might need a puller to get the yoke off.

    i just took the nut off of mine with an impact gun, but decided not to change the seal after all, the yoke slipped right on and off, i also reinstalled my yoke with just the old crush sleeve, old nut and an impact gun...usually if you just re-torque to 180-185ft lbs you dont have to worry, use loctite on the nut...
