Thread: U-Joints advice
05-15-2013, 10:00 PM #1
Hey guys. I'm going to do the U-joints on my rear driveshaft this weekend. I have a 2000 Silverado Z71 (5.3). I just checked the Autozone site, and there are over a dozen choices. I have read the sticky thread about how to remove them, but I just need to know what parts to get now. Thanks for the help!

Good luck!! I have not had a ujoint replacement experience that has not required at least 1 additional trip back to the parts store. I suggest removing them and taking them with you to get the new ones. Compare diameter of caps and distance between c-clips with caps pushed into place.

when you look up the part on autozones website look at the bottom of the description it tells you what there for there are like 20 diff. options but really the only diff. between them is brand,warrenty,etc.. but it will say at the end of the description (extended cab rear shaft) or (front shaft standered cab) just select the one you need u-joints are a simple thing if you dont have mods and havent upgraded them to heavier duty and all that. Or if you are going to go into the store you can bring the old ones like Pikey suggested or you can just go to the counter tell them what you have an what you need and then can look up the right one for you (that is as long as the parts counter guys in your area are not retards)IF IT AINT BROKE DRIVE IT HARDER!!!!

NeapCo, Spicer, and Precision are good name joints...and in some of those, "heavy duty" simply means "greaseable"...
If you find a Napa, they re-box Precisions if I remember right...
