Spicer Joint part numbers

Good afternoon all,

I've searched and searched, and I just end up confused and a bit frustrated. Honestly, there's too much knowledge here LOL!

I have an 06 Wrangler X. I want to be a little proactive and replace my drive shaft u joints with upgraded, heavy duty, non-greasable Spicer joints. And maybe the DC joint too.

What are the part numbers I'm looking for, please. Any help is way more appreciated than I can express online.

Thanks,
Pete

Spicer 5-1310X for the drive shafts. The axle ujoints are a different # and don't remember what they are. I have it written down somewhere, lol!

Google

DS joints are SPI-5-1310X.

Northern Drivetrain, LLC: Spicer 5-1310X

Centering ball is Spicer 211544X.

You didn't ask about wheel joints, but for reference they are Spicer 5-760X.

Just so you know, the above Spicer part numbers are superb/stronger/more durable/direct fit upgrades to the OE Spicer u-joints the factory installed.

For a standard TJ, all five driveshaft u-joints are the same. Use a Spicer 5-1310x on both driveshafts. For the axle shafts, use the Spicer 5-760x.

The front driveshaft has 3 u-joints... one at the front by the axle & two more at the other end that connects to the transfer case. The factory rear driveshaft has 2 u-joints, one at each end.

A DC joint has one centering ball and two u-joints.

This is the DC joint Jerry speaks of

These are the items I got when I did mine.


The picture only shows two ujoints but there are three. The strap kit is for the front ujoint to the differentail. the four bolts are for the TC side of the cv ball centering yoke. The centering yoke you get may look slightly different than the factory unit because the aftermarket ones are greasable, which is a bonus.

Replacing the u-joint straps is a good idea while your at it.

As long as we're tossing around part#'s / descriptions, could someone PLEASE help me iron out wtf they did with the Rubicon drivetrain? I was in the slow process of replacing u-joints when a couple mechanical failures forced my hand. I had to buy some parts store cheapo's to get back on the road the night before a wheeling trip and ran into a hell of a time with the parts store computers. Now i'm afraid to order the expensive Spicer replacements because i'm not sure they'll fit where they're supposed to. I bought the Jeep used, and it's possible that the previous owner played musical parts with yokes and driveshaft parts...

-I got the 5-760's for the axles and replaced them with no problems.
-I rebuilt the front DC with Moog HD non-greasables and centering ball (had vibes/chirp, needed to fix ASAP)
-While ordering Moog joints from RockAuto and had the front shaft out, i picked up a front DS-to-axle u-joint. That was a royal pain to press out due to the melted plastic sealant chrysler locked it in with...
-Shortly after that i started getting some vibes from the rear and noticed play in the caps of my rear DS-to-axle u-joint, and that's where the fun started...

On my way home from work that day i stopped at an auto-zone and picked up the el-cheapo joint that the computer said fit the rear DS-to-axle yolk. Got home, went to install, no dice. The cross was the right size, but the caps were 1 1/8", and the D44 yoke takes 1 1/16". Also, two of the caps had inner "C" retaining clips instead of outer "G" clips. (Note, this joint would probably have fit the FRONT shaft-to-yoke connection). I stuck the old joint in my pocket and drove to a different parts store (advanced auto) and asked for the same thing at first (Rubicon, rear DS-to-axle joint) without showing them the bad one. When the guy brought it out i opened the box and matched it to the one from mine, no dice. Cross size matched, but the new one had caps that were a hair too big and had inner "C" clips on 2 caps. The computer insisted that he brought out a Rubicon rear DS-to-axle joint. I had him try a different brand, same thing; cross fit, caps too big. Next i asked him for a rear DS-to-axle joint from a Sport model. That one had caps and clips the RIGHT size, but the center cross was too small. Also, the computer did NOT have a way to specify D44 rear in the sport, even though it was an option...

Finally i ended up having the poor guy bring out one of every u-joint box that was roughly the right size to contain the bad joint i brought. We started opening them and comparing until we found a match. When we checked the computer, it said the match was ONLY for the front driveshaft double cardan joint, transfer case side!

It worked, but what the hell happened there? Did someone change out both my rear pinion yoke and the back half of my rear DS, or are both parts store computers way off?
