Universal joint

Recommended Posts

Universal joint bad on my rx300 and the shop said it can't be repaired. They say I have to buy a new drive shaft. Is this true? Has anyone replaced the u joint in their car

I believe there is a problem replacing the joint, but May I suggest looking up a local drive shaft company and get a estimate from them....They are generally cheaper and know what they are doing.

I'm currently fixing this same problem. the shop i went to wanted 1800 to buy the oem from the local lexus dealership. i only need the front drive shaft. apparently it is a 2 piece section a front and a back that is actually 2 parts. anyways. i found the front drive on ebay that is remanufactured and they even added grease port. its 375.00 but if you send your old part back (free shipping) they will refund you 100.00. so 275. the shop said its a pretty easy job so it will run about 175.00 for labor. after all the dust settles it will run me 450.00

Good Job Greg2111, I know locally we have a drive line shop that will take your driveshaft and rebuilt it.   Probably comparable in price.  The labor price I assume is in and out.
