    Quick Help (universal joints)

    Ok I just put in new universal joints.. (well kinda) mine were worn really bad so I went to Orieleys and bought more, pushed them out with a 2 ton arbor press and installed the new ones to the shaft, got the shaft home layed on the ground in the rain and wrestled the shaft back into place...well it appears the new ones are too small the u-clamps are just holding them from fallling out, they can slide back and forth freeley.. I am freaking out, I have 2 people comming to look at the truck to buy tommorrow and it isn't driveable like it is.. any help is appreciated and lemme know if anything similar has happened to anyone else. I cant remove them again because I dont have the press and I live in an apartment so a tool bench with a vice and sledge are not availible..CRAP!

    Turns out the guys at orieleys are just as stupid as the autozone guys. They gave me the wrong part...Anyways all is well I have the correct part now and the shaft is back up and running smooth...
