Not much info on here on removing the driveshaft. U-joints are shot so I need to pull it. Any advice or short cuts would be appreciated. Thanks

Well I sure got a lot of help on this one! I pulled it yesterday. Not to bad of a job except for the spring pin!! Pulled the floor out and right front wheel and snaked it out of there. That frikken pin was a sob! Might replace it with a bolt. Any thoughts??

I have no idea where this pin is located or what it does, but my caution would be that a spring pin fits the hole and holds the parts in place with ZERO play or clearance. This will probably not hold true with a bolt, unless you get really fancy with a reamer and a shoulder bolt. I suggest extreme caution.

Just seeing this,never on forum, I just had to do mine also and you did it the exact same way I did it, and I replace the pin with grade 8 bolt of the same size and put nylon locknut on it,will be a lot easier to get out next time

My only thought on the bolt is it may slop the hole out. A spring pin has continuous pressure. I'll have to keep an eye on it!
