U-joint question
Hey yall I have a 2010 regular cab 4 banger 4x4 and it only has 51,000 miles on it and I replaced a u-joint about 6 months ago on it and last friday another one went out and I was just wondering if anybody else was having problems with u-joints going out like that it just seems a little early to have two u-joints go out like that. I dont drive it hard or anything like that it has had an easy life only off road 3 or 4 times in a grassy field after some rain. Just wanted to see if anybody else was having this problem. Thanks yall

Did you ever grease them?

I have beat the piss out of my 08 for 80k and mine are just now getting a 'little' slop. I over-grease mine regularly to keep them clean.

Replace them all with these. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/MOG-270/
Rock auto has them for $15.

Take care of them and you'll never have an issue again.

42k on my 2010 never had an issue grease them every 5k miles or before.
