U-Joints

I had a 90 Dodge Dakota. Just yarded it because i lunched the transmission, due to driveshaft popping out due to a bad U-joint. Would lubrication have cured the problem U-joint when it started to make noise and vibrate? This is for future reference. Thank you for any answers. Have a good one!!

Hello Hirsch, greasing may have bought you a day or two once a vibration set in but the basic answer to your question is no....Mike

If the U-joints were bad, they require replacement.

I agree.. Keep in mind though, most OE u-joints now aren't greasable anyways..Replacement ones usually are..And if you're going to replace 1, replace them all at the same time..
