U joint change

Hello everyone!

I just changed the u joints on my 89 C-4.......made a big difference in performance . But what a job!

I would get a strange shutter at 90mph and the odd clunking noise when i put it into gear.

What was happening was that the left shaft was very loose (bad u joints) and it was causing the car to shutter as it truned.

I suggest that you use the DANA u joints for a replacement.(sealed unit)

The greaseable u joints tend to collect grit, which will cause damage to the unit. (non sealed)


Good Luck!
