So I need to replace my front ujoints pronto and was wondering if regular joints you would get from lordco are good enough or should i really consider some spicers or somthing else.

Spicer all the way! Lordho's joints are garbage. Coast powertrain for spicers.

Definitly greasable!! And Goto coast power train to get your u-joints, not Lordco, Lordco gets them from coast and marks them up!

much prefer non greasable myself, they have a really nice ribbed seal to keep shit out, I haven't had any failures since I stopped using precision and changed to Spicer non greasable . I did have to use the greasables in my cardon joint because of clearance issues

I asked lordco if they had spicers, they said yes and pulled out an AC delco box, looked identical to precision:rolleyes:.

Yup works like a charm! Make sure to coat in antiseize before re-install, then next time it will fall off once you take out the bolts
