    Has anyone had to replace U-Joints yet. My mechanic said it is not standard nuts. The backs are fine, the fronts need work. Any help would be fine, I'm bringing rig back in to him 12/11. Thanks, Dave P.O.T.R.

    I'm confused with the ? Not standard=metric, not 6 point= 12 point or any combination of the two.

    Ya, Snap On makes a special tool to help with the removal. Just did the U-Joints on mine under warranty. Good thing because when doing so they damaged the rotors and pads. Total of about 2500$ in parts and labor to do the u-joints!:) I told them to load the anti-seize for next year...
