    Anyone happen to have a part number for the 10 bolt axle u-joints from either schucks or napa? Wanna make sure I don't show up and get the driveshaft u-joint!

    I bet its been posted before, but search yielded nothing.

    I just did the 10 bolt on my 78 K10 (last week I did rear brakes as fronts were in excellent shape, balljoints, tie-rod ends, balljoints, axle u-joints, stabilizer, bearings and seals so I can double check to make sure the P/N is correct), but NAPA P/N (IIRC) is RL1325.
    That is for the HD non-greasable version
    I am not sure what the P/N for the greasable version. The non-greasable versions require a little more maintenance as far as interval changes, but I think they are stronger. Maybe yes, maybe no, but when I had the 10 bolt in the 80 I busted a few greasable ones (from NAPA), then a friend suggested the non-greasable version. Plowing, truck pulls, etc. they lasted until I swapped it out (about two years of abuse).

    P.S. I haven't stopped looking for the R&P

    I thought you were locked in as a misspelled PP.
