"The last time I did u-joints on my JKUR I tried the sledge and socket method and it was difficult. I then used my ball joint press and it was much easier."
This was my thinking was well. I don't own a ball joint kit so I'll rent one from the auto store. I rented a kit to replace control arm bushings last year and found it to be annoyingly difficult due to the c clamp on the kit being damaged (pried apart slightly). I'll rent from a different store this time and hope for a kit in better condition!
