Universal joints are located throughout your vehicle from the steering shaft to the driveline ends. U-joints are serviceable four-point members that join two shafts or mechanical pieces that must rotate and change degree without binding. While U-joints are incredibly durable, they can still break. Two of the most common U-joints failures occur within the front axleshaft and also where the driveshaft connects to the differential yoke. Even though a damaged shaft can ruin your wheeling day, a broken U-joint will only cause a brief pause in it, if you have the right tools and spare parts onboard. Complied here are a few tips on how to quickly get your U-joint swapped, no matter if you're on the trail or in the garage.
