Drive shaft U-Joint clamps/brackets
« on: December 29, 2015, 01:34:12 AM »
Hi guys.  Have a question.  Drive shaft U-Joint has two (2) brackets holding it on drive shaft.   Brackets have numbers 1 thru 4 stamped on top of the bracket.  Does anyone know why??  thanks!

I suspect you mean '.. two brackets holding the rear most U joint to the differential..'?  :) 
U-joints are pressed into the driveshaft...
