    I just replaced my u-joints with the brute force ones from auto zone and its much smoother and no vibrations any more from my warn out spicer ones that were probably originals to the truck :crazy:

    I don't like how the brute forces can't be greased. But that just means I'll have to replace them sooner. But Brute Force has a pretty good warenty.

    Not mine. There are no grease fitings to grease. I asked for geasable but it would have to ordered and then it would have been backordered. So I went with the cheaper ones :rolleyes:

    I got my greasable brutes at a local parts house, they only stock name brand stuff....brute force, moog, timken, etc. That is where I buy all my stuff. Check out the local mom and pop auto parts stores. But some chain stores DO carry them or they can at least get them, you just have to ask.

    For you two Ma$$holes :haha: check out any of the Brookline Machine branches. They carry Spicer and Brute Force stuff. Good guys to deal with too. I have my drive shafts made at their RI branch.

    ok, today i checked out the 2 local mom and pop stores.....for moogs from Mahans will be 39 for uppers, 35 for lowers, so about 155 total...and from Indy it will be 42 for uppers and 37 for lowers, so about 165 total...the guy from Indy told me the Moogs now have a teflon lining in them, anyone know that? i also asked one of the places a price for joints, and Mahans has them for 17 with zurk in middle, and 21 for zerks on ends...what are you opinions on the positions of the zerks?? the brand of the wheel joints are called Precision, any ever hear of that?????....
