I'm in the process of overhauling my front drive shaft. Im not a budget and have a total of about $50 to replace all three U joints. Whats are some decent U-Joints i can get and still be inside my budget?
3 u-joints and something that resembles quality....all for $50....sorry don't know anything that fits those parameters. Spicer's are usually in the $20~$30 each range, last time I checked. IMHO, anything less is a crap shoot as to how they will last.

X2 on the Spicer recommendation. For the driveshafts, it is very hard to beat the Spicer 5-785x which is a sealed u-joint that makes for a nice more durable upgrade to the OE u-joint. Nearly any driveshaft shop will stock them but few autoparts stores like Autozone, Kragen, Pep Boys, etc. carry anything that good.
When you have a choice, buy American made.
I could possibly swing the Spicer 5-785x i found them for around 16 each. I don't really do any heavy off-roading but i really wont have the money to do this all over again if a u-joint fails from poor quality. I cant find the Spicer products anywhere local and i cant really wait on shipping i'm leaving for college in two days. I get a NAPA 20% discount can they order the spicer u-joints?
yes they can order the spicer u- joints and usually have them in the next day (at least they did for myself) They also have a brand called precision u joints. I used them on my rig and they seem to be as good if not better then spicer. They were a few bucks cheaper as well. You can get the greaseable or the sealed. I like the greaseable because I can shoot fresh grease into my u joints whenever I want. (usually every oil change)
