    I have to replace mine in the next few days for the second time in a year. Do you guys recommend a special company, model, exc? Last time I spend 12 bucks so I think I should get the 35 dollar one this time or something.

    buy spicer. If you still blowing them apart then its time to upgrade to a larger u-joint. Specify which one or ones you are destroying and people here will give you more answers than you can afford!

    Yea what do you do with the truck and what have you done to it. You inspect the joint surface to ensure it's in good shape? Also where are your u-joints breaking?

    I don't remember what company, but I know I got it at Discount Auto Parts for 15 bucks and it was in a little red box. I think it's just meant as a stock replacement for the 210hp engine and not meant for the 350hp engine that I have now.
