    Where to buy full circle \"snap\" rings for u-joints

    I would like a little extra security without a high price tag when I replace my u-joints next (haven't had a problem so far...fingers crossed and knocking on wood). Machining the yoke for full circle snap rings is not hard, just takes patience, but where do I find/buy the full circle rings without buying the joints as I already have new spicer's to go in?

    Any good "industrial" supply house should carry an assortment of a variety of snap rings ( internal &amp; external ) and you might not have to purchase a minimum amount or a full set . HTH , Tom
