    Does anyone know what the model or part number is for the u-joints in the front drive shaft of the 05+ Tacomas? I did some searching, and the rear u-joints seem to be Spicer 5-213x 1330 series, but I'm pretty sure the front ones are different. My rears are kaput and I figured it wouldn't hurt to do the fronts as well seeing how cheap they are ($15 each for the rears).

    Awesome, thanks for the link! It looks like the oem u-joints have the zirk fitting coming out of the center of the u-joints, and the 1310 5-153x have them coming out of the sides/corners. Any idea if the standard 5-153x will fit, or is a 1310 non-greaseable like the 5-1310x a safer bet for clearance of the yokes and balance?

    Found this for more info: See page 253 in the PDF document. Front drive shaft uses Spicer part 5002322, which is obsolete. Typing that Spicer part into here shows 5-1310X as the replacement. 5-153X has the same dimensions as the 5-1310X but it has the zerk in the body of the u-joint (not in the bearing cap). Should be the same part as stock.

    For the sake of having everything in the same thread, the rear driveshaft takes Spicer part 5004947, which was replaced by 5-1330X. The equivalent greaseable part is 5-1330-1X (zerk in bearing cap, just like stock).
