OK good to know, now I need to hunt around town and find out who has them.

Thanks for your help.

I can only find them at the specialty driveline places. None of the parts store chains sell them. You can also get them for a little less here:

I'm still debating solid vs greasable. What are you going to get?

NAPA use to carry them back in the day, maybe 15 yrs ago. I will go with greasable, down the road you can grease them and prolong the life of the ujoint. Thanks for the link.

I found some of the Spicer Ujoints at Drive train industries a local company: http://www.dti-inc.com/, but some ujoints you can't get greasable now adays. anyways the part numbers are:

Front: 5-1153X (greasable)
Rear: SPL22-3X (Not Greasable)

The rear is a little bit bigger then the front one is.

Small typo: 5-1153X -> 5-153X.

Spicer also has their "Life" series, which has triple lip seals. Here are a couple of docs I found with part numbers, but some of the part numbers are now obsolete according to Northern DriveTrain.

My driveshaft guy said that everyone uses the non-greasable ones now a days, even for performance and racing applications. Stronger without cross drilling and the crosses look forged to me rather than cast as the older ones are, talking Spicer brand. Only other comment is that on a small block car, the rear joint is only larger on the differential yoke side (1330 vs. 1310 IIRC), the driveshaft side is the same as the front (but the front is all four cups the same, smaller size).

P.S. Mine are the triple lip seal jobs.

I personally use Neapco and whatever the brute force joint is from Autozone.
