Axle u-joints & maybe ball joints.

Well it is time to replace the axle u-joints. I looked for kits at quadratec, but didn't find any. Does anyone sell kits with all the parts - (u-joint, axle seal and whatever miscellaneous parts needed)?

2nd part, should I go ahead and replace ball joints at this time? Milage is 80,000 never been off road.

Thanks for any input,

auto zone carries the axle u-joints! bruite force are pretty good, and they were only about $23? a piece. my friends and i have had no problems w/ them. if you go through quadratec or 4wd they will try and push spicer u-joints, which are considerably more $

I would recommend the Dana/Spicer U-joints and Moog ball joints. I have seen too
many off brand ball joints go bad and cause damage but hey want do I know only been in the automotive field for the past 17 years. I do not know of any kit for the ball joints and U-joints. But I will be replacing both on my '92 YJ in the next few weeks.
