Try to remove the yoke with a hammer by gently hitting the back side. I just removed one last night but it was out of the car and I had to get a little rough with it. Just be careful when reinstalling the yoke. There is a crush sleeve that should be replaced when the yoke is changed. When you use a used crush sleeve the torque needed to crush the sleeve will be less since it has been crushed already. If you get it to tight you will burn up the bearings. You could get it so tight that it won't turn.

Naw, those are problems everyone runs into when changing springs and rears. You should be able to take a hammer and tap the back side of the yoke to get it out. The brake line is a easy fix, be careful of the flexible line between the block and the body, I don/t know about 68's but the lines for a 71-3 are no longer available...

try to get a crossover U joint so you don`t have to change the yoke.
i don`t think you can just swap yokes, i think there is something that needs to be "set" by someone who knows how
