Hi folks,

I want to remove the driveshaft on my 73 (C6 with 9"diff). Is it simply a matter of removing the U bolts on the rear yoke and then pulling it out of the C6?

I read something about taping up something to make sure the bearings dont fall out near the rear somewhere?

Cheers,

Vincent.

Make sure to have a drain pan under the tail shaft of the transmission and have the rear axle height elevated as transmission fluid may tend to drip out the tail shaft if level is full.
