u joints

Is there a trick to getting the u joints out? This is the 87 Ford, 4wd truck. We're replacing the middle ujoint (?swing joint?)

Some have clips, others have to be heated to pop out the plastic that retains them. I've used a torch in the past to blow out the plastic.

Most of the aftermarket replacements come with C clips now.
