U joint replacment 97 Outback limited


Recommended Posts

I haven't replaced a U joint since 1979. Back then you knocked them or pressed them out and pressed them back into place. My new to me 97 Outback limited is in need of a U joint replacment. The dealer says no go, you must buy our very expensive drive shaft.


So JC Whitney has the joints and so does a place called Rockford Driveline. Even if I replace all the joints it is still cheaper than the dealers new drive shaft.


Question is about the term stacked? Is this just a name for what we used to have in the 1970's, the kind that you removed the outer keeper and banged out the joint.


I don't have the press and my neighbor will be doing this job. Is there anything to know, any secrets to the job?
