These joints are a Heavy Duty replacement joint for standard original fitment propshafts. You can find many cheaper options on the market that may seem identical to these, but the ones I am referring to are the GENUINE HEAVY DUTY GKN joints. Although GKN Hardy Spicer also produces cheaper joints that look similar, these heavy-duty ones are of better quality.
Fitting advice:-If joints have thrust washers, make sure there is only one thrust washer in each cap, you do not want to double them up. Always fill the caps with grease as this will help hold the needles in the cap on assembly. Never use a socket to press the caps in as the socket is hollow this can cause the joint to push through the cap, you must use something flat. If you can’t get the circlip in do not over press the cap as you may damage it, you may just need to tap the yoke apart to relieve the pressure caused by pressing in the caps. You must ensure all UJs and the slider are fully greased on fitment and are regularly greased during use. After greasing cap greased joints, you must make sure it does not allow grease to leak back, they must seal after greasing. If you have dirt in there, they will not seal. If this is the case the grease nipple must be replaced or capped with our plug. Always make sure your propshaft can still turn with your axle at full suspension drop out, long-travel suspension can allow the axle to drop down too far causing the joints to bind and break.
On lifted vehicles, the propshaft is under more strain due to the angles they run at which means greasing the joints is very important, especially after being in water and mud.
