So I need to change the U-joints and just wondering whats going to be the easiest way. I think the designer of the SC was in a pissy mood the day he designed the under side of this car. I have never owned a car that makes me work this hard to change the joints. AAAAHHHHH

I think you can just keep the driveshaft in the car and press the joints out from there. Remove the clips and apply the press.

I remember seeing either here or on the Mark viii site that if you lower the pumpkin assy it will give you just enough room to slide the shaft out the back without dropping the fuel tank. Do a search here and at markviii.org. Eric

I don't know if I did something wrong or was just out of patience but I dropped the pumpkin and still had to lower the tank. I thought about trying to put them in without taking the driveshaft out but figured nothing could be that easy on an SC.:p
