In Reply to: flat spots felt on rear ujoints. OK to use or not? posted by DHoang on June 28, 2001 at 10:06:42:
Does flat spots felt when rotating rear ujoints mean it needs to be rebuilt, or is it ok to continue to use ? It's only flat at the midpoint position of the two Ujoints and no where else on the rear Ujoint. I have a second driveshaft and it exhibits the same flat spot condition at the same position. SO that's why I am asking whether this is normal in wearing or just a fluke on my part and I have two shafts going out.,.
FYI, center bearing sagging, that's why I have driveshaft out to replace this part.
Also, who has the best prices and best reputation in providing rebuilds w/out defects ? Don't want to take out dshaft twice because it wasn't balanced right the first time out...
