I am replacing the u-joints on the front axle of my 2000 and just want to clear a few things up. First, according the stock specs sticky, I need 5-297x joints (correct me if I read it wrong). It seems that the 760x joints are supposed to be the same, but stronger. Are these the same size, just different part numbers (I know the 760x is a forged cross and supposedly stronger)? So I could get either 760x or 297x or do I need to make sure they're 297x's?
Second, where does everyone get Spicer U-joints? In the past, rockauto has been recommended, but they don't have the spicer joints listed now. I'd like to get greasable joints if possible.
I found this:
Amazon.com: Spicer 16525.06 Greaseable U-Joint for Front Axle Left or Right: Automotive
Looks like what I'm looking for, but details are a bit lacking, can anyone confirm this?
Amazon.com: AlloyUSA 11500 Forged X-Joint For 5-297X And 5-760X U-Joint Replacement: Automotive
Has anyone used AlloyUSA joints, good, bad, or otherwise?
Thanks for all the help!
