    CAA guy from the hammer was parked across the road for 20 after dropping off a Subaru next door. He was watching me hammer away for a while before asking if I remembered to remove the c-clips. Duh. As soon as he wandered up the driveway to supervise the last cap finally popped out. Attachment 89274. Rusty as f%ck.

    Quick test drive and we'll see if that solved the problem.
    Just picking up on this thread (I know it's been here for awhile). I think I have the same problem and am considering replacing both front end u-joints myself. Any pointers? How difficult was it? I've got a 2008 JK unlimited and really the only thing that could cause a problem is the rust. The dealership was really good at helping me figure out the problem but mentioned that there may be an issue with the wheel bearing when putting it all back together.

    Discovery... After replacing u joints every 10k,

    Big knobby tires help cause, and mask bad bearings.

    Bad bearings help destroy u joints faster.

    Replace bearings, replace u joints... Smooth as butter.

    When you removed your wheel bearing/hub, did you have a problem with the speed sensor? Did you remove it from the hub or just unplug it from behind the shock?
