    I don't have the napa number in front of me but I do have the Autozone, is there one of them by you? I bought the napa one but returned it because it was like 20 dollars more and the autozone one has a lifetime warrenty. I'll look for the reciept in the morning.
    GOod luck,
    Mike

    Mine used a #348 joint. It all depends on what year you got. It will either be a 348 or 447. Just buy both and return the one that isnt right. Youll be able to see right away which one is right and which one isnt when you compare it to the driveshaft and axle yoke.

    Its the best thing ive done to the her besides the lift. The welds on the spider gears are still holding up great too and Im gettin used to the chirping now. Ive got just over 1000 miles on them with no problems. Of course Ive only gone wheelin 3 times, so well see how it holds up. I think I want to come down there again sometime in late Sept or Oct. I plan on taking on the wall. Keep in touch. Later

    I had the Autozone u-joint before, it was 23.99. Now I've got the Napa one because Autozone couldn't get me another one. It was close to $30 for a 447 I think.

    got the reciept right here $40 . I hate how prices differ by locations. I bought a power steering pump at school for my caddy for $35. Two weeks later bought the identical pump back at home for my father at the same chain store for 65. They said there was nothing they could do about the difference!!

    It'll be a Spicer 1310 to 1350 conversion or a Saginaw S44 to spicer 1350 conversion. Any auto parts store should be able to look up the conversions in their book.
