thanks for the welcome and reply... going to give it a shot tomorrow... will take some pics and post how it went...
dropped the swing arm and removed the old joint... which side of the joint would be the easiest to put on first? the side from the block or the side from the shaft?
The old U joint...

I would definitely consider replacing it. the part is not that expensive and it will save you alot of trouble down the road. after i did the install above, i figured out that i was mising an oil seal for the shaft. had to tear it all back down again. parts should be here in a couple of days.
