    i've been looking to replaced my u joints. my u joints on my driveshaft are replaced once when i had bad vibes. instead of greasing the joints, i had it replaced with autozone duralasts u joints. the two joints at end doesn't have the greasing hole, but where the yokes are at, has the u joints lubeable. i've been looking at 4wp for the u joints. not sure which one to get for the ends.

    http://www.4wheelparts.com/Drivetra...&t_s=237&t_pt=3624&t_pl=102547&t_pn=D/S5-134X
    or this:

    right now, i need to grease my u joints except that the ends at the cb and rear axle i can't, due to that it can't be lube. got any suggestions?

    You're post confused the fuck out of me.

    If I were you I would call 4wheel parts and ask them. Looking at your links you posted I think the two options are different sizes. Your best bet is call and ask them or a part store.

    Good luck with your install

    sorry for the confusion, but what i'm trying to describe is that both of the u joints at the rear axle and by the carrier bearing are from autozone. they dont have the nut to grease them. so its starting to feel the vibes from the rear. well yes, i will call 4wp for more information.

    Whatever U joints you go with just make sure you get greaseable joints & avoid ANY bearing that is a "perma-lube" or sealed, non serviceable... you'll only regret it later..;)

    x2, pumping some grease in a zerk it a lot easier and cheaper than replacing the damn thing all over again.
