On my 1999 chey tahoe 4wd 5.7, I am trying to remove the front driveshaft to determine if my problem is in the front differential, after removing the front part, I can't get the driveshaft to slide forward. So the question is: how do I get it to slide forward?

Hello,

Try to move the C clip loosen it so the shaft will b come shorted which will help you remove to from the front differential and transfer case. Check out the image below.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

Cheers
