- Remove the rear drive shaft from the vehicle, and clean the external joint components to access the retaining hardware. Remove the retaining rings and press the U joint from the drive shaft, and or yokes bore. Hone the bores to remove corrosion and rust so that the surface is round ensuring no extra pressure is on the replacement U joints bearing caps. Verify correct phasing of the shaft, and press the new joint assembly into the shaft and or yoke installing new retaining clips. Reinstall the shaft onto the vehicle and lubricate the replacement U joint. Check and top off transmission and or transfer case fluid as required due to fluid loss during disassembly. Torque the drive shaft retainer bolts to specification and road test the vehicle to check for noise and vibration caused by the U joints.
- Remove the four tires from the vehicle, and clean the wheel studs, hub flanges, and the rims centric. Check the vehicles braking system components for wear, remaining brake material, and signs of pending issues. Reinstall the tires onto the vehicle in their best suited locations based on overall wear, torquing all lugs to factory specification. Inflate all tires to the manufacturers suggested pressure, and visually assess the tread for abnormal wear which may indicate a need for a wheel alignment. Reset the vehicles tire pressure monitor sensor locations where required, using the factory approved TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring) system, scan tool. Road test the vehicle and confirm there is no abnormal handling characteristics following the rotation. Note: Some vehicles may have a slight drift following a tire rotation. This is due to a pattern that developes in some tires due to excessive time in one location. This condition should improve as the tread conforms to the new location / alignment angle. If drifting would not improve, sometimes an alignment or a cross rotation is required.
