    How hard is it to replace the u-joints in a cv shaft? What is involved?

    Its an aftermarket 1350 shaft with outer snap rings.

    I did my front shaft some time ago and it was no big deal. It's just like doing a normal UJ but a bit more fiddley. The spring pressure is not really a problem but would be easier to do with 2 people. I did mine alone but I was using a press so it wasn't really a struggle.
