Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1986 Chevy Astro 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles

The front u joints needed replacing, but the yoke and the driveshaft do not have grooves for the retaining clips. The replacement u joints came with c clips and I don't know where the clips are to be installed. Can you advise me? Thank you
