Guys,

On my 1993 LWB, the universal joint broke, I was still able to drive it a short distance with no problems. I picked up a new part but I am unable to get the front drive shaft to turn, so that I can remove it. I have it in neutral and the 4WD in neutral, still it will not move.

Any suggestions on what I need to do?

Thanks,
Gary Ritter

In the above post what I meant was that I could get the front Drive Shaft to turn so that I could remove the bolts.
and install the new universal joint.
Thanks,

you need to either push the car until the bolts are accessible, or jack up both ends and place on axle stands.

The drive shafts are connected to the axles via the diff and then to the wheels, if the tyres are in contact with the ground you will not be able to turn the shaft...

True but with one front wheel in the air and both boxes in neutral you SHOULD be able to turn the wheel all be it very slowly, if you can't there is a chance the viscous has seized.

true, but if you read Gritter's post you will see that he didn't have the vehicle jacked up - hence my response!
