Yeah I replacing all 3 u-joints and going to give my front drive shaft a nice coating of paint. Already sanded the upper part of the driveshaft down already. This last u-joint is being a pain. I have it here up in my shop a work. Presses work wonderful!

Superlift doesn't make a driveshaft for a '97 and older Ranger.......that is only for the '98+ Rangers.......

i have the exact same drive shaft as you.....i will look when i get home.....was that at the t-case or the axle?

You need a Double Cardon Joint ball seat repair kit. Driveshaft shop will be able to help you with that. The dealer might also help but the price could be a little high.

I got it from ford yesterday. I got it all back to gather. Right now got a nice coat of gloss black on the shaft. Looks brand new. I'll get some pics when it is all dried up.......sitting in the paint booth in the shop right now.

Ship it out than lol. Jk. Take some heat from a little propane tourch to it and get a BFH (BIG FUC*ING HAMMER) Heat steel surrounding the u-joint, than knock it on through. That works. Also what helped me out even more was spraying wd-40 every afternoon on the joints for one month strait.
