    These Dana 44 u-joints sound cool, I've heard good things about them from people I know around here.

    [shameless plug] Try www.snort4x4.com , the Sweaty Nipples Offroad Team web page and BBS...btw if you live in the Seattle area their BBS is a great local board for wheeling and parts for sale/wanted /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif [/shameless plug]

    These look like a Brute Force U-joint with the bearings removed, and the sleeve put in.

    I guess that u-joint is no longer available from what I read on snort4x4. But it was reported that with the the bushing replacing the needle bearings and the caps welded to the ears of the axle shafts that these joints lasted a very long time.

    But then I was reading that RRP has CTM knock-offs coming out for around or under $100 ea /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Not that I really care, I haven't even busted a stock one yet /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
