hey guys, well im chaning my drive shaft support bearing, and i noticed that the u-joint right beside the hanger is super flimsy, like if i tilt it up, it just drops right down! and the one on the other side, is still pretty firm, is this normal??? and also, is it possible to change the u-joints, ive been searching some bimmer sites on the net and it says that they are not servicable!

does anyone know whats up with this,

id call charlie, but its like 9:30pm and i have the driveshaft sitting on the floor, if i cant change the u-joints ill throw it back on the car, if i can ill wait until tomorrow so i can buy new ones,
thanks
jay

They are not easily replacable, but there are places that rebuilds them.

Unfortunately i dont know of somewhere to recommend at the moment.
