It does not have to come out, replaced mine from the bottom. Puddle are you getting your machine dynoed by any chance? If you don't remove the front drive shaft it will melt the seal.

Spinning it like that is probably what did it, and yes you have to take the U-Joint apart, there is a clip in each side inside to be removed. A pair of inside snap ring pliers would be nice for that, I used two flat screw drivers.

On the front yoke itself, the one attached to the front diff, there are two clips on the inside on each side of the U-Joint right up against the yoke. You have to remove those clips then push the shaft to one side pushing the cup out then the other but be careful when you get the cups out, they have needle bearings in them that will fall out.

The clips are hard to see if the ends are not right there, you will have to find the end and turn it around toward the rear of the vehicle.

The U-Joint will stay in the drive shaft.
