Mine was balance with all grease fittings inline..
It most like has been balanced before in its current orientation so after you do the u joints you want it to go back in the same way....

On my '73 620, it took a hydraulic press to get the little buggers out, after popping the 'C' clips off, and it was still a pain in the butt.

"All of a sudden it started making noise, then started losing power. I limped the car home and tried to get it up the driveway, the engine just died."
Why do people do this?
A $100 tow bill is never as much as the extra damage you cause by trying to "limp the car home".
Don't be that person !

Yeah, that's a good point. Usually a hammer will do the trick, but if you beat them that hard, you may do some damage to the yokes.
Wouldn't hurt to try. If you can't get them done, your local driveline shop should be able to get them done for little money. They probably won't use customer supplied joints though.

mine was on a 510 and had a bitchen time so I took it to a driveline shop. If you do, they like to replace it with their own ujoints.

I had my 3 u joints done and 1 I brought had play in it new in the box... luckily they replaced with one they had and didn't put the shitty one in just because I brought them the parts... they gave it back to me so I through it in their trash..
