U-Joints!!!

Converting my truck to 4x4. The swap is almost complete and I got new (to me) drive shafts. The u-joints were junk so im trying to get some new ones. I want spicer!

Anyone have the spicer PNs for the front and rear U-Joints? 3 on front shaft and 2 on rear shaft. Thanks!!!!

Re: U-Joints!!!

What im gathering from some research is the normal greasable spicer u-joints are:
front: 5-213x (times 3 of them)
rear: 5-3147x (times 2 of them)

the spicer life u-joints (non greasable) are:
front: 5-790x
rear: 5-795x

Can anyone confirm?

Re: U-Joints!!!

I hate the games they play with part numbers these days
It used to be U joints were a 10 series a 30 series and a 50 series now they have all these fancy part numbers

Rear driveshaft all 3 same joint:

Spicer 5-178X or 5-1350-1X

at axle, at center support, at transfer case:
Bearing Cap Diameter (In): 1.188 X 1.188 Inch
Greaseable: Yes
Length (In): 3.625 X 3.625 Inch
Snap Ring Type: External



Front Driveshaft, all 3 same U joint:

5-213X or 5-1330-1X

Bearing Cap Diameter (In): 1.062 X 1.062 Inch
Greaseable: Yes
Snap Ring Type: External
Quantity Per Vehicle: 1

I prefer non greaseable they seem to last alot longer and I'm the type that greases everything each oil change

rear driveshaft uses 1350 series, front driveshaft uses 1330 series

Re: U-Joints!!!

I think Spicer is China nowadays. NEAPCO is made in Pennsylvania and tough to get through a dealer network only. More expensive but brutes in driveline. Get what u pay for. My left front axle joint was NAPA lasted 8k miles. That is when I found NEAPCO.

I bought the spicer u-joints just for that reason, I hear great things about their quality.
