No sir. I had some cheap ones from Autozone. There were the only supplier that said that there were u-joints available. I walked across the street to the Nissan dealership. I can only get a complete driveline new for about $500.00 the local driveline shop that used to fab their stuff said they could order one for $600.00 and found one on ebay for $500.00

Going to pick and pull tomorrow after dropping the kid at school and before going to work.

comparsion of old/new bushings.. If you look at the old washers on the right notice the flat spot where they were resting on the frame.

Had the cowl screened before - leaves still got past them and into the HVAC grinding system. With the screen between the blower box and the evap box, if it grinds them, they don't get into the evap box and clog the drain.

Yeh Autozone doesn't know shit about parts. The driveline series is 1310 and Spicer makes them. You might want to try a NAPA or Carquest, they are slightly better parts stores. Worst case I would find the nearest Fleetpride and take the driveshaft to them, they are a pro driveline shop. Good luck sir!

New clutch, new rear crankshaft seal, center driveshaft carrier bearing.

All done flat on my back in my garage by myself.

If I was like a cat and had nine lives, that job just took 2 of them.

What a PITA!

Put new windshield wipers and a gas cap on last night. When I bought the truck the previous owner gave me the wrong gas key, went to fill it up after work one day and discovered it was the wrong key. Was having a horrible day ended up ripping it off.

Distributor cap and rotor new and old. The rotor is a bit wet because I had to spray some pb blaster to get the damn thing off. Also I broke it while trying to remove it

F_M, the people in there that do know anything are usually the commercial guys - and they have them hidden. DIY only knows what Z-Net tells them...
