Yeah, if you are just looking for stock replacements then go with Spicer 760's. Most auto parts stores should carry them.

Yep, go with the Spicer 5-760x. It's a good u-joint, more durable than the original Spicer 297 our TJs shipped with.

Thanks again,

Spicer 1310 series u-joint is what the TJ's driveshafts use. The p/n used to be 5-625X which some may still list them as but apparently Spicer's current p/n is SPL22-1X

alright, after searching almost every autoparts store, i called a couple driveline shops and one has the spicer 5-760x's for $35 but I brought him down to $28.92, is that price alright? I wish these things were cheaper, I'm going to be on a budget this weekend
