Yesterday i went to Napa and got the 3 rear U Joints for the drive shaft that needed to be replace. My mom got home and said how much did u pay for those so i said around 60 - 65$ she said holly crap you paid way to much. She said her works carrys ujoints so i said how much would they be and what kind? Well she didn't know the price by hand and what brand. Next day she went to work and got the price she got all 3 u joints her price for 18$. The bran name is neapco they have a grease nipple and they came pre greased they looked stronger then the ones from Napa so in other words i saved over 40$ I got home there was 40 some dollars on the table with the bill and she also took the u joints back to me. What a great mom!

Yeah thats my story lol

She can also get me Ball Joints, tie rods and what not so that is really sweet i'm buying a new front end for the ol bronc and rebuilding the front and rear drive shafts. I priced the parts at Napa and holy poop and my moms prices are 1/4 the price of Napa for the whole complete front end.

Thanks
Mike

Neapco is good, I've had good luck with them. One step below Spicer IMO, but still quality.
My last spicer u-joint only lasted 30 miles but then again the stub shaft only lasted 30 miles too

True, I went through about 4-5 spicer and Neapco ujoints before I realized the centering ball in the double cardan was FUBAR. Cant really blame the joint...
