    My 78 has a 2 inch lift on it, and I burnt up a U joint in about 3 months. Isnt that way to quick for something with that little lift? Whay could have caused it to wear so quickly so I dont have to replace another so soon? It was the U joint at the t case, not the axle.

    Are you replacing them with greasable ones?

    Was it put in correct? Even a little something out of whack will fry it out quickly...
