mazda B2200 u joints and drive shafts

Asked by May 22, 2017 at 02:04 AM about the Mazda B-Series Pickup

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a mazda b2200 single cab and a mazda b2200 extended cab as a
parts truck both 5 speeds. the Rear u joint on the single cab is broken and
needs replacing. Are they replaceable? if so can i use the u joints or entire
drive shaft from the extended cab on the single cab or what do i need to do
to make that work

Usually the extended cabs drive lines are longer or have a two piece driveline. Yes the joints are serviceable but you may need a special stake tool too do it right. I recommend taking the driveline too either a driveline shop or call around to some shops to see if they have the proper equipment to do the joints, or if desperate the Mazda dealer.


U-joints are replaceable as tennisshoes says. The rear yoke that the driveshaft connects to would need to be inspected also, it could be damaged from the broke u-joint. As far as you other drive shaft, if it is the same as the one in need of repair, you can use it. May be a different length, just have to check.
