I have a 96 GC Ltd w/ 5.2L. I need to replace the seal and possibly the pinion bearing on the front differential. What is the bolt size on the u-joint in front of the transfer case? 8mm and 5/16 are too big, 7mm and 9/32 are too small.

I usually use 5/16" at the axle and 8mm at the t-case, front or rear driveshaft.

Either of these sizes appear sloppy and when I turn the wrench (box end) the wrench slips. I've tried more then one wrench, even my neighbors wrenches.

I was able to take it out using the open end instead of the box end. Don't forget the blaster or whatever you are using. And just apply quick and not so hard pressures.
