so how much better are the after market u joints cost and are they worth. my truck not that tall but it is reaaly torquey, straight six done to the tits, and will be welding the rear end and getting 38's maybe 40's. would spicers be worth it or just get some spares and leave them in the truck.

spicers are the best normal ujoint
dana/perfect circle are the cheaper version
the spicers use a silicon seal that is impervious to petrochemicals, the rest use rubber that rots and degrades
spicers all the way

Get them from Canadian tire. Almost everything they sell now has a life time warranty, and ther prices are not that bad. I am using their u joints ( lifetime ) rear brake shoes ( lifetime ) good for those day's in the mud when you eat your brakes on the way home.

Problem is if you break a ujoint in the front axle and in turn it tears apart your fron steering knuckle ----One of the oooops on the front page !!!!


Had my ujoint held ? Would I have busted my steering knuckle?
