the stock ujoints are pretty strong, I went with the alloy USA ujoints. yes there too strong for my axle shafts but they are fully greasable and i dont plan on doing anything too extreme too be blowing ujoints or shafts anyways.

I went the OEM Spicer units. It was recommended that if you do not have upgraded axle shafts the upgraded U joints are not necessary.

I had no problem getting them in.They fit just fine.The only issue I have is getting grease in them.I had to get a thin fitting for the grease gun to grease them because of the placement of the zerk.I have seen the ones with the grease fitting sticking out the end of the cup and would be easier to grease but over all they are fine.http://www.fourwheeler.com/techartic.../photo_03.html
