    since i decided to hold off on my 1 ton swap and stay with my 10 bolts for a while, i need to do my U-joints..

    i called my parts guy, who usually has a couple brand choices, but in this case he only has Precision available, in standard and heavy duty.. i was kinda hoping he had some Spicer or something.. is Precision a decent brand for u-joints? will the HD's be a decent u-joint?

    thanks for any info.. :D i searched but couldn't seem to get the right keywords going..

    You can buy spicers via the internet or your local parts guy can order them. A high quality spicer is in the $30 range so why skimp? If you do order them, waiting a week is worth it.

    he said the HD Precision would be about 20...

    believe me i have no issues with getting quality parts.. it keeps me up at night if i don't buy the best ;)

    he didn't have the HD's in stock, take a day.. if he can get me spicers, i'll go that way.. if not, i'll just have em get the HD Precision... they only need to last thru the yr hopefully...

    We're working on it, but things aren't going to change overnight.
