From all accounts Spicer should be the ones to go for. I run a combination of Spicer and GMB.

Spicer was a good choice. I hope you went with Spicer's sealed u-joints which are stronger and more durable than the greasable versions are.

I did Jerry. Back in the day Spicer had bigger trunion's and smaller more numerous needle rollers. I think I can still remember how to press and repack joint's although it has been quite a few years since I did one.
