    Doesn't really matter, they're all pretty solid. The factory OEM ones are great. Just gotta keep them lubricated. Squeaking is your Toyotas way of telling you it needs lubrication. Let it squeak for too long and you'll have damaged them and need to replace.

    Good news is that they're not very difficult to replace, easy DIY job with only a few tools required.

    thanks much. so it might just be that they need to be greased? if so thats an easy fix because i just replaced all three ujoints about 6 months ago.
