    Which type of ujoint should the front axil shafts take? Should I run the Lifetime non-greasable type or the ones with a grease fitting (dont see how these w/ fitting would fit.) Also are these ujoints held in by a retaining clip on thier back side? my shafts are a litle rusty in this area making it hard to see where the clip starts and ends.

    Don't get a greesable one. You can't get a greese gun in there and that greese vain seriously weakens tha joint. The inside of the cap has a recess for a c-clip to hold the joint in.

    5-760x dana spicer has to be one of the best 10bolt or dana 44 joints made, they have proven to be very tough and are non-greasable.
