Rear Drive Shaft U-Joints
 
Does anyone know what the Spicer Part Number is for the two (stock) U-joints on the rear (main) drive shaft of a 1999 Wrangler with a Dana 35c dif.?

5-785x

Use a Spicer 5-1310x which is a nice direct-fit stronger/more durable upgrade to the Spicer that is in there now. :)

Spicer has obsoleted/discontinued that p/n & replaced it with the 5-1310x. :)

Thanks, I'm out of town right now and don't even have access to the Jeep, but wanted to get them ordered so they'd be there when I get back. Appreciate the help...:thumb:

oh, thanks Jerry:), I didn't know that, I've been ordering mine off of e-Bay under the 5-785x number.

The 5-785x wasn't all that old when it was suddenly discontinued & replaced by the 5-1310x, that makes me wary that perhaps the 5-785x had some kind of a problem. :confused:

The 153x is still around if you want a greasable 1310 size u-joint. The 5-785x and 5-1310x are both sealed.
