Front axle u-joints

Today I got my 97 inspected. Well the left u-joint is seized tight and the right is falling apart.

I am going to be swapping a D60 in over the sumer but i may need 4wd in the mean time. What u-joints do you guys recommend. May just swap them into the D60 when that goes in

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

Re: Front axle u-joints

I have had bad luck with MOOG in the past couple of years.

Any other suggestions? Does RXF make u-joints?

Spicer, worth the money, should be what the factory ones were and look how long they lasted!

Re: Front axle u-joints

Correct, think pretty much every US truck has used them forever pretty much
