Well, I finally finished the job. It never fails in that the auto parts store sold me a universal joint that was two small. Of course I did not find this out until I had everything apart. Other than that, everything went smooth. I took the entire axle/shaft/hub/bearing assembly out at one time. Chet, you were right, the bearing/hub assembly was fine, only the universal joint was bad. The directions you guys gave were right on the money.

I figure one of the true values of this website is this; The dealer wanted $202.00 just for the labor to do the job. Another auto repair shop wanted $370.00 to replace the whole axle/shaft assembly. Yes, my time is worth something, but let me say it feels good to keep that money in my pocket instead of handing it to someone else, particularly when I can do the job myself.

Once again, many thanks to everyone for all the help.
