    Has anybody ever used the longfield 300m ujoints for there d60.I just got off the phone with bobby from longfield.He said they have lifetime warranty and guaranteed they would stand up to any ujoint.He said he put them up to a test with ctm's and are just as good.Has anybody ran them or consiedered it since they are almost $200 cheaper than ctm.

    I have them and they kick arse! So far no problems at all. Kept well greased, I don't see how they would ever break.

    If/when I upgrade my 10 bolts front ujoints I will most likely do longfields. They are pretty much bombproof and made from only the best materials. I like the Longfields because they are simple and are quality that someone stands behind.

    Bobby definately stands behind his product. I recently called to get some extra grease fittings. As soon as I said that I had his superjoints he got all happy and said, "have you been beating on them?!" He actually wants me to go beat on his u-joints! I love that!

    I have a pair for my 60, but they're not installed yet. They do look plenty beefy though.

    Also, like Harley said, Bobby stands behind them, and that's worth something right there.

    I think they were 330 a set shipped. Cheaper than ctm's and no bushings to wear out.

    interesting.... I still have to break my new ones first to decide if I would want to spend that kind of cash or just replace back with my brute force autozone specials... at $30 each.... :crazy:

    longfields are only worth it if yer gonna run chrome axles. but those brute force joints are pure CRAP. i would just get some good old spicer joints.
