    Absolutely this! You will change u-joints far less often than the other brands.


    They will work for a while, maybe

    Just somethings to note.

    Spicer 5-213X:
    • double seals
    • zerk fitting on the body
    Spicer 5-1330-1X:
    • triple seals
    • zerk fitting on the cap
    • beefier and a better choice for severe use such as offroad

    FYI the 5-1330-1X is the exact u joint used in the rear shafts from toyota on shafts that have a zerk from the factory.

    Replaced my center joint when i did a CB mod just cus i was already halfway there and the joint was all of like 20 bucks. Key is to keep them joints lubed. My 3 rear shafts get ~8-10 pumps of grease every 5k miles when I do my oil. Front shaft gets the same treatment every other oil change.

    I didn't say they wouldn't work, I've used them, as well as Federal.. Neither are as good as Spicer, could be the poorer quality control.

    If they last 100k id say that is good quality control, i would think anyone would say the same but i guess not. Ford vs chevy.....
