after spending over $500.00 in tools and parts to do wheel bearings, ball joints, etc. Etc, the problems are the u joints in the front axle of my ranger. Its a dana 35 and has what look like the original SPICER u joints. Ive done a u joint before these seem impossible.I have the whole shaft already out, and beings I just purchased a 4x4 ball joint remove/install kit, I used it instead of the weak 9" C clamp ive used previously, to press them out, TO NO AVAIL, cannot budge it. Oh, and I have removed all 4 snap rings from the caps. It is my only means of transport and now taken all apart and AT A DEAD STAND STILL. I dont even want to hoof it to the parts store to get replacements until I have at least the one out to compare to what they give me seeings ive been given wrong parts twice before even having started this. HEADACHE.
I tried all of the caps in all directions. NOTHING!
Someone got any good suggestions? Please=)
