    I suspected my u joint in the rear end of 14ff was bad when I could move it up and down about a 16th" between the dog ears. I bought a new Spicer u joint part #5-178X. My driveshaft has a 3/4 ton end on it. When I put the new u joint in it still does it /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif I thought there wasn't supposed to be any play in it /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    The spicer part number for a non greasable life series 1350 joint is 5-799X IIRC.
