    Looking for a good quality u joint and center carrier for a 2008 2wd dbl cab. Where is the best place to order them from. I need cheap but looking for quality too. Any suggestions?

    what is the difference from the kit you recommended and just the u-joint, its a street truck, no off road use. Any thoughts on grease vs non-grease

    Go greasable. Still a high wear and rotation part.

    The "kit" is really just extra / different retaining clips to make sure you find a pair that fits the clip channels. Ill give you a hint, you wanna use the green tinted ones.

    Edit: Our drive shafts are Dana Spicer, so that U-joint kit he posted is pretty much OEM replacement. I just helped @ImMrCrash replace his with the same kit.
