OX U-Joint

What do you think about the new OX U-Joints? Anybody running them? They cost about $150....whats the deal with that?

Ctm's are about the same pricing

they dont use Needle bearings in either one... they use brass or bronze bushings.. not intended to be used for continuous use like on street, each barrel has a Zerk fitting,
Ctm's out of 13,000 made, 900 came back broke.. & most of those were in competition use

OX's have a bigger center section, i havent heard anything serious about them

offroad use with some Chrome moly shafts.. they work great

they are still new.. the price will come down just with time.
the reason they are expensive, 1 the materials used, 2 they are rebuildable.... Basically they are still paying for the tool & die's to make them, give it some time the price will come down, just like everything else... may not be much but they will eventually

I talked to the OX and CTM people about using their U-Joint on the street and both said they have people using them on the street and have had no problems; and do not expect any.

The CTM have a life time warranty, I am not sure about the OX.

I just read that the OX U-Joint comes with a 5 year Warranty.

If that is the case, then the CTM would be a better choice.

Let's hear it from the forum, "Which is Better"?
