Had a bit of a vibration during acceleration around 2000rpm.
Turns out the middle U-joint had some play. After removing the drive shaft I figured as long as I'm here, might as well do them all. Went with MOOG Super strength and borrowed a press kit from AutoZone.
Drive shaft came out easily enough, just heavy and awkward.
The bad one's end cap broke off instead of pressing out, so I found a socket that hit the sides of the cap without hitting the yoke and hammered it out.
The other 11 were perfect and I grease them every oil change, so I'm not sure what happened with this one, but they could be the original ones with 350,000 miles on them.
I had a little vibration for the past 3 or 4 years while braking during the last 10 mph that I could never find and eventually gave up on, turns out it was the U-joint because it is gone now.
