    i would like to put spicer Ujoints in my truck, but after getting the price from my local place i'm not sure if i am getting ripped or what
    28$ per joint. is that good or bad? that is my "cost" as i am a business.
    i could get Napa joints, for almost half that, but isn't spicer better?
    anyonline places?

    My opinon Spicer is best and around 25 buck a joint sounds about right.

    I know this place in Sacramento Calif sells them http://www.differentials.com/
    I think some of the vendors here sell Spicer stuff?/???

    I have only used Napa joints once, and they said spicer on them. Maybe it was just that one set, but you might want to open the box and check.

    what series is the joint and is it greasable or solid. the spicer life solid stuff can run around $23-$25 just an FYI but the greasable stuff is $9-$13.
    neapco(mostly what advance carries) is turning pretty bad most joints we get now have serious side to side play in the cap like the trunion is too small the cap will rock around on the trunion. FWIW

    I get my Spicer joints at Napa. You have to ask for Spicer and they may have to order it. I paid $22-24 for a Spicer 760x ujoint. That is about they best you can find.

    Brute Force are nongreaseable Neapco's and are probably the next best thing to Spicer 760's. I believe that the Spicers are worth the extra $10 though. Now that my truck see's some decent trails I am going to use only 760's because they are stronger and last longer. I have had a Brute Force in my longside axleshaft for about 8 months now and it has held up fine sofar on some hard trails but when I take the frontend apart next it is getting replaced with a 760.
