S1/S2 Drive Shaft UJs

Recommended Posts

Is it better to have a grease-able UJ or a none grease-able UJ?. The GKN/Hardy Spicer direct replacement UJ is part# HS-163 which is a grease-able unit. There are however alternative Dana Spicer and Neapco UJs available with just as good a reputation as Hardy Spicer.

Dana Spicer Part# 5-135x - standard duty, grease-able

Dana Spicer Part# 5-785x - heavy duty, solid body, none grease-able

Neapco Part# 1-0153 - standard duty, greaseable

Neapco Part# 2-0785PD - heavy duty, solid body, none grease-able.

The UJ cross refs to a standard 1310 series:

A= 26.99mm ( 1.062 inches )

B= 81.76mm ( 3.218 inches )

Prices per UJ are all within a few dollars, so cost is really not a factor.

So which is better ,grease-able or not, and which brand to buy?

The greasable ones will last a lot longer than the non-greasable, as long as you remember to pump in fresh grease every so often.

Like GKP says. They'll last longer if well greased, especially on the left hand side where they tend to dry out quicker due to exhaust heat. I tend to get about 10,000 miles out of a set before they need replacing. I don't know if that's good or bad?
