I heard some noise when shifting and decided to look at my u-joints. The one connected to the rear drive shaft was in pretty bad shape. I went to autozone and got a replacement but it doesn't seem like it fits correctly. Its a cheapy Neapco PN 1-0153. I have some pictures of it sitting in the location where its supposed to fit. If you can identify if its the right part or not and what would be a not too expensive correct U-joint to use I would appreciate the help.
You need a combination u joint 1310 on one side 1330 on the other.

I learned one thing from helping my son with his F150... take the old U-joint with you if you can. I found out the hard way that Ford is famous for throwing a couple of different sizes in their stuff for no rhyme or reason. It just saves an extra trip to the parts store if you take the old one.

Thats exactly what I did and ususally works but somehow the PO had fit smaller parts than what were needed in there...Oh and I did buy the neapco equivalent of those spicer sizes I listed hehe they were cheap which is good for the jeep.
