All,

I know it's 'staked' and a specialist job, but I believe its failing on my orange car...vibration which is worse under power at 30+ Mph...plus I can hear some squeaking noises with the windows down.

I am trying to find a specialist machine shop that might help...but the part itself..the UJ...is it available?  is it this?

anybody ever fitted one?

 

any advice to share?

I was lucky to find a specialty driveline shop to re-stake new ujoints.  He supplied the new ujoints as well. That was about six years ago and my guy has since disappeared.

 

I'm just saying it can be done by an experienced shop.  I would keep looking.

You may want to reach out to Patrick @midnightmotorsport in Seattle,  I believe he maybe able to steer you in the proper direction.

After some thought you may not be diagnosing correctly.   From my experience ujoints make a clunking sound on acceleration and deceleration when they are failing. Vibration/squeaking points more toward CSB, wheels or half shafts IMHO.

All,

I pulled the diff, driveshafts and propshaft for inspection..all good apart from the prop - when i manipulate the rear UJ it has low resistance around its centre position but is very stiff/notchy off-axis...this is worse on one yoke (the flange) than the other..definitely not how smooth and uniform i would expect it to be....

So, I'll keep searching for a specialist out here in Asia who might be able to renew the UJs...  Seems such staked UJs were on most BMWs in the 70's/80's...so that gives me some hope that someone local has dealt with this issue before..
