    Maybe it's the area i live in, but sheesh, i wish it was like $20, i had to pay close to $40 for mine, and it died about 8 months after installation. Had a nice what,,,30-90 day warranty?

    Went to the local Autojunk store and bought two of them for much cheaper, still using the first one and have a spare too., Those there were like $23 if i remember right.

    No they come already set up the way you need it. I just bought a 447 on Sat and it was sealed in a bag in the box.

    By the way that is a greasable u-joint, not solid.

    I don't even know if you can get them solid....Tim, what say you.

    Nope, that's what seems to suck about most conversion joints, they don't come non-greasable.

    Some do, but not very many.

    If they took two joints and switched the caps, not only would the caps not fit, but they'd be the wrong width.
