* Kits made up of multiple items may not show an inventory in-stock status but are almost always in stock!

tech note

QU40768 U-Bolt is made to fit standard yokes for Spicer series 1310 and 1330 series universal joints. The u-joint cup size is 1-1/16". The u-bolts have 5/16" shanks and the legs measure 1.406" from center to center. These u-bolts will NOT fit Ford yokes made for the 1330F universal joint with 1-1/8" cups. Use QU40841 for those Ford applications.

tech note

To keep the u-bolts from becoming rust frozen in the yokes, apply S9975 or S81343 Anti-Seize to the unthreaded portion of the legs. Put some S9978 or S24200 Threadlocker on the nut threads before installing the nuts on the u-bolts.

tech note

Torque the nuts to the specification listed in your factory Shop Manual or my TM3000 Driveshaft and Universal Joint Manual or TSB3510 Driveshaft Tech: Vibration, Balance, Angles, Runout and Torque Specifications.
