Amazing: Axle shop wanted $930.00 CDN for this.
Followed your instructions and got the parts for $120.00 CDN. + $100.00 for the U-Joint/Ball joint installer.
3 hours later, back on m Grand and on the road..
Excellent post- Thanks for the info.

I made a question for the same item at " "

Five.nein answered and give this link there to help..
Thank you... They are very helpfull...

I made more search at internet,
Then, so, I wanna ask some...

-All parts that you you used are brand "Spicer", right?

-For Centring yoke and spring you used the part #211544.
This part seems have no greasing hoses.
Instead of this, can we use #211355 which have greasing hoses...?

-With #211355 (which have greasing hoses) can we fix #2-86-418 (Rubber cv boot) for better protection of grease?
Or this rubber thing can not be fixed to the non-greasable Cv centring yoke?
Wha you thing/know please?

-Are the 5-153x 1310 u-joint have greasing hoses?
If I wanna change three of them, all 3 are same?

Where can I bought them online?


I write this message smilar of the other couse of your page updateing.
If you and the others give answers here, please make the same answer to the link " "

Sorry for late reply...

As I told before, I' m livin in Turkey....

*The U joints can be find in Turkey but they are approxiametly ~25-usd... in Turkey
*The CV centering yoke can be find but not the greasable one... not greasable Cv centerin Yoke is ~150-usd in Turkey
*The bearing is not sold, you should be so lucky if you find a used one... If it is here, might be ~10-usd in Turkey
You do not need/and could not apply this if you use a greasable CV Centering Yoke....
*The Grease gun Needle Nose Adaptor is not sold in Turkey and no mechanichs heard abaut it...
All garages have the grease gun with big hole...
If it is here, might be ~10-usd again....

So I decided to buy from United states by shipping to turkey...
*CV Centering Yoke Greasable spi-211355X... 51.96$ (instead of non greasable one priced ~150-usd in Turkey)
*Bearing - spi 2-86-148 (as I bought greasable CV Centering yoke, I don' t need this, but buy it...) 5.33$ (same price might be in Turkey, but not sold here)
*spi 5 153x U jonits greasable 11.34$ each (~25-usd... in Turkey)
*w241 Grease gun nose adaptör for to grease cv centering yoke... 5.4 $ (same price might be in Turkey, but not sold here)
plu shippings...

so I made shopping and requested the wendors to send them at Elkhart/Indiana....

But is a Nightmare...

"I stongly not advice not to use to you..."

They lost my things at my accaunt screen 3 or 4 times...
They are not answereing my internationlas calls...
they are not answereing my e-mails...
etc. etc. etc... lots of problems...

sometimes they are answering me and writing, "sorry abaut delay, we have a digital problem" etc.. but not solving the problems...

I checked google and learned that The Elkhart/IN County Sheriff Department is collecting information abaut

Offf..... I wrote to Detective Caples...
Hi tried to help me.... But he should only take my complimant, nothing else...

At last,
My digital accaunt screen becomes true and I paid them for shipping by an afraid of losting my money for shipping also...

After 1.5 weeks of shipping payment of me, they sended my goods...

AT LAST I HAVE THEM YESTERDAY.... I Have My Goods With A 2 Months Delay And Have Lots Of Stress... Stress... Stress... Stress...

I thing to change my all U joints at front and rear shafts....
But I bougt 7 U joints, maybe I will use the others later...

so I paid "160-usd totaly" LESS with shipping.
If I bought them I willl spend approx.160-usd more in other words...

Do Not Work WiTh

Thank You For Your Technical Help...

I was just searching for a place locally to rebuilt my front driveshaft that didn't want an arm and a leg to do it. With this writeup, I may just tackle it myself! Hell if I mess it up, I'll just convert to a slip style and ditch the CV altogether! Thanks!
