If you are talking about the left and or right shafts that go the spindles, make sure you get the right u joints.
I just replaced them on my sons 95 f-150.
The c-clip will beon the inside of the shaft. Nothing fromthe top
Since the older ones were rausted, I used a small chisel, and broke the c-clips from the older ones, and then a grider to cut the older u-joint apart. Then use a socket, just a touch smaller than the outer diameter of the u-joints and pound them out.
I hope that helps.
