    I have my rear driveline out and decided to get new u joints. Problem is, I can't find anyone that carries Spicer joints. I went to NAPA, they had the larger of the two joints in a super strength but they don't carry the smaller one. I have a 12 bolt and a 205 and one U joint is larger than the other. Does anyone know what the part numbers are on these and where I can buy them? Thanks,
    Jeff

    Get a Napa part # buy taking the Ujoint in and they should beable to match it up for ya. Now take that Napa part # and phone order Spicer brand. They can cross ref. the Napa # to Spicer. ORD can probly sell um to ya. Even diferentials.com (sp?) or any ring and pinion shop.

    You should be able to call Spicer. They should be able to tell you who in your area sells their products.

    Never said I could spell!

    I took the U joints last time I went to NAPA, they matched the larger one but not the smaller. Not in stock, don't even make one in that size (so they say). Anyone have a number for Spicer? I'll try ORD as well. Thanks,

    I bought a bunch of Spicer U-joints from <a target="_blank" href=http://"http://www.natldrivetrain.com/">National Drivetran</a> and also from <a target="_blank" href=http://"http://www.martelbros.com ">Martel Bros.</a> National Drivetrain specializes in drivetrain type stuff and Martel Brothers specializes more in race car stuff, so National Drivetrain would be a better choice. The last Spicer units I got for my Blazer were from National Drivetrain.

    Don't forget to grease the universals before installing! The stuff they pack them with is a corrosion inhibitor, not a high-pressure grease.
