How do you put a ball joint back together on a 1993 frontera drive shaft too close to tap into place?

you need to release the drive shaft to give clearance to fit the ball joint................PS *I think the vauxhall method is to remove the anti-roll bar link and shock absorber from the lower arm,then remove the lower arm from the chassis to give you more movement on the ball joint.The driveshaft can then be left undisturbed.

The joint you are looking for is the U joint. You have one at the back of the transmission and another where the drive shaft attaches to the rear end. On the extended version there will also be a U joint in the middle. So if you look under the car and the drive shaft just looks like one long tube you have a two joint shaft. If however, you see what appears to be a joint about the size of both of your fists together in the middle of the shaft, you are looking at the third joint.

You probably mean U - joint (universal joint)! Located at each end of drive shaft or axle and possibly in the middle of drive shaft.

Ligaments are found at the joints in the body. They are used to keep the bones close together so the joint works properly.

No. Actually, it depends on how the account is titled. If it is a Joint OR account, than yes, one person or the other can close it without the other. If it is a Joint AND account than both need to be present to close the account.

If the account is "Joint Tennants in Common" then all of the joint owners must be present to close that account/write checks/withdraw fund. Most banks do not offer Joint Tennants in Common, but offer "Joint With Rights of Survivorship" this means that only on owner must be present to close the account.

A cv joint (also known as a constant-velocity joint) allows drive shafts to transmit power at varying angles. They do this without too much increase in friction.

If it is a front wheel drive vehicle it could be a bad CV joint. In a rear wheel drive car it could be a bad universal joint.
