    Former owner of my truck told me that he used volvo ujoint for his truck.. Biltema artikkelnr 63-100.
    For Volvo 140-240 series to 960 series.. same size
    cost 69,90 kroner. abouth 8 bucks.. could save us 200 kroner
    May not last as long he guessed.. but he didnt have any problem with it..

    I am gonna check this out today... I rather brake a u-joint then my axel with my 38,5 swampers.

    I used to do the same when I was in europe, adapt what is available cheaper.
    Volvo doesn't make bad quality, you might end up with a stronger ball joint /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
