1997 Chevrolet Tahoe Repair Question
1997 Chevy Tahoe Driveshaft,ac,trans,
Ok Is Repalcing a Driveshaft a Big deal is it $$ Does anyone know a good place to take it ?
Well, first of all, why do you think you need to replace your drive shaft. Usually it is the U-joints that need replacement unless the drive shaft has broken a U-joint and fallen out on the road or some way gotten bent. Drive shafts are balanced and can sometimes throw a weight that is attached to them. Then they start to vibrate at certain speeds, usually highway speeds. As far as repairs go, replacing a drive shaft is pretty straight forward and much easier if you can purchase one with new U-joints already installed. Then it is a simple bolt in deal. Replacing U-joints can be trickier and is much easier if you have a hydraulic press.
You may try sharing the symptoms that you are having with the vehicle with us and why you came to the drive shaft as the problem.
I expect that you are referring to the front halfshafts and not the propeller shafts so they have no u-joints.
That is quite a job to change and does require some special tools.
This post was a prank by my teenager and his friend. I left my browser open to this topic while out in the shop for a couple of hours and they did some advising in my name. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and will take steps to ensure it does not continue to happen.
Thanks for telling me. We don't need any of that.
I don't think he'll be doing it again. His punishment is digging up a piece of foundation (5-6 ft deep) where a repair needs to be done. I was gonna use the backhoe but I handed him a shovel instead and he wont get the keys to his car back until the hole is dug.
Glad you told us. I was pretty pissed at you before. I thought something smelled fishy when i looked at the rest of your posts.
Glad I caught it too. I didn't really wanna start out that way on the forum.
