Angry Sparrows (Aka fixing a driveshaft)

The needle bearings from one of the u-joints.. This wasn't the worst

The shaft of one of the worse u-joints.. This one had no needle bearings left.

year my front drive shaft started squealing. After a frustrating time trying to get it fixed by the dealership under warranty, I eventually pulled the drive shaft and replaced the u-joints and centering ball myself. As you can tell from the pictures taken shortly after my last trip to the dealership, they were rather destroyed..  It’s actually a pretty simple process, and a cheap u-joint tool from Princes Auto helped a lot… If only getting a dealership to do a proper warranty repair was this easy….

So, if you hear the angry sparrows a calling from your drive shaft, and lubricating does not help, replace those u-joints!

    chat about a specific topic using hashtags. If they only see
    special promotions through Facebook, then it becomes a great
    marketing tool where people will help you advertise through these social media
    sites. Research your content and plan out what you’re going to say
    so you can present it in the best possible way.
    I’ve got to meet several of these persons; and let me tell you,

    and a whole slew of other sites that no one hardly remembers  I never saw the Friendster era,
