Front Drive Shaft

Hey i have a quick question. In 4x4 i get a vibration. If i really get into it the vibration goes away. I looked at my drive shaft and noticed that the joint at the T-case is shot. I don't know the name for it but it is the piece that connects the drive shaft u-joint and the input u-joint for the T-case. What is this called and will this solve my vibration problem. Also it doesnt turn in 4x4 as it should, feels like the drive shaft is binding.

That is a CV joint. It pretty expencive. your probably better off buying a whole new drive shaft.
That should take care of the vibrations.

Any competent driveshaft shop should be able to make you a new one. It will probably not be cheap, but it might be easier than trying to locate one. Check out this forum and you can see the one this guy made for his '92.

Look in the Yellow pages for a machine shop that does drive shafts, or Dan-co there are lots of them that can repair it for you. Phone you local 4x4 clubs and ask where they get there's done at. Call your local class eight dealership and ask them who they use for drive shaft repair.

Napa only sells ones for automatic transmissions. How ever, they do list all the parts to rebuild yours.
