I have a couple extra slip yoke drive shafts lying around and would like to replace the u-joints. I’m a bit baffled as to how to remove them. I don’t see any clips, or rings visible. Are they just pressed in? Any help is appreciated.

there is a 1/2 clip on the inside . knock off the clips and use a socket to drive them out

support the drive shaft when driving the cup out so you don't bend the shaft

I saw that half clip, but wasn’t completely comfortable messing with it.

Thank DIX

take out both clips and that will give the movement room
it may take some pressure to remove . hammer & a socket socket or a press make sure you support the yoke
