Universal Joints?

Anybody ever had any problems with universal joints?
My universal joint before the rearend is going out.
Any suggestions who to buy and who not to buy one from?
Thanks
Ryan

Just get stock replacements. I lose my pinion u-joints like 3-4 times a year. I'm pretty fast at changing them on the side of the road!

Thats what I was thinking... Cost would have to be justified after having to do that a couple times on the side of the road...

Pinion angle is perfect. Probably just need some CTM's or OX joints. You gotta pay to play:
