    Chromo shaft? I busted my POS OX U joint and once I get that contraption out of my axle shaft I am planning on putting a Spicer 760x in there. Is the general concensus this is probably the strongest u joint other than CTM and OX? I am NO way going to buy another OX and really don't want to drop $200 on a CTM. My long side right now still has a CTM and I do have another CTM cross section(minus)caps and those little o rings.

    So will I be ok running this U joint? I guess it really doesn't matter as long as I don't fugger up the ears on the shafts if I blow this U joint...:doah:

    Depends on the shafts. If we are talking superiors, go CTM, for warn/yukon go for the spicer. You can also get the bronze bushings for them (to replace the needle bearings) and have them cryo'd.

    you cvan buy all the parts for a ctm. so if you have a cross section you can buy the caps which will save you some money

    I knew you could buy a rebuild kit, but it doesn't include the caps. I will send Stephen an email and get a price from him.
