thanks. i just ordered 2 spicer 5-760x u-joints.
is there a good write up where i can see how to install the u-joints?

i agree, spicer u joints are the way to go. they last around 80-100k, and aftermarkets last about 30-50k.
i've heard greasable can be weaker, cuz they are hollow all the way through, i don't have an opinion there. but if you don't grease greasable u joints frequently they won't last at all.

|Jerry Bransford||Your current OE u-joints are Spicer 297, the upgraded Spicer joint which is more durable is the Spicer 760. The exact Spicer part number is 5-760x. It works very well, I regularly do very tough trails that are occasionally 5 and 5+ and my 760 ujoints are holding up nicely.|

Im running the alloy USA joints. i got them from northridge4x4.com. Pretty much the stock sealed joints ar ethe way to go. but i like the alloy usa, fully greasable as well.

|4Jeepn||I would just install the stock u-joint spicer brand.. should last a while. Also I would think its the cheapest route...|

D30 U-Joint Noise
My right stock D30 u-joint makes a knocking noise when I brake after backing up.
What should I do now?
