Need some advice on this. Loud ticking sound that i can only point towards the u joint on the transmission side of the drive shaft. Ive had my mechanic look at it when i couldnt come up with a solution and he wad leaning towards that as well. Only issue is the price tag of the factory driveshaft. Because the u joint is pressed in it is not replaceable so they sell ya a whole prop shaft instead... Couple questions. Are aftermarket driveshafts with with replaceable u joints worth it? Are they safe? Is it gonna go out on me quickly? I know that dorman makes one for about 500. Will that one put up with abuse? Will i have to replace those u joints soon after buying it? What have you done? Have you had this happen yet? We want to get our little "Black Bean" going again so it will last.
