    How do I get it out? it's ok to laugh. It's a 205 I unbolted the 4 bolts that connect the driveshaft to the case and the 4 nuts at the ujoints at the front of the shaft. The front poped out fine but cant get the back to come out.
    Do I have to press out the caps on the ujoint to get it to come out?
    Sorry for newbtastic questions

    You unbolted the ds from the pinion, and unbolted the rear of the front ds from the t-case and it won't come out??? I say give it a tap-tap-taparoo with a BFH or a crow bar.

    x2. Mine came out with a wiggle or two. Sometimes that slip joint will seize up a little and that will make it stick. BFH it to get it out, take out the ujoints, put a breaker bar throught the ujoint eyes on each end. Stand on 1, pull on the other. It'll break loose.
