Default Steering shaft U-joint

Been a long time since I've had to ask a question here.

Okay boys, It's getting to that time where the U-joint in my steering shaft is becoming sloppy. Rockauto has no part listing, most places want to sell you a complete shaft.

Now I know there's a U-joint out there that will fit, it's just a matter of finding out WHICH U-joint that might be.

I'm reading here that possibly there are differences between the steering shafts of 2wd and 4wd, and then some trucks had manual steering. Whether or not the U-joint is the same in all of those I have no idea.

Any thoughts?

You can order universal ones that are actually rebuildable. You have to know the spline count, diameter, and so on. I think I found mine on Summit Racing. https://www.summitracing.com/search/...ypes-_-keyword

I ordered based on the Chevy shaft that I am using, and I took a guess at the Nissan end. I was wrong about the Nissan end, so I cut the splined portion off the Nissan's joint and welded it to the replacement. Just be sure to take it apart before welding it, of course.
