      Comments about Brute Force Universal Joint:

      Used to replace the factory U-Joints on the rear driveshaft of my 06 Jeep Liberty. Easy install once the rusted stock U-Joints were removed. Might want to add a little more grease to the caps, but then again I may just be an over-greaser.

              These Brute Force U-Joints are great. I installed some on the front axle of my Jeep about a year ago, and haven't had a problem since. These U-Joints are for the rear driveshaft, and took care of the vibration I had at 55-65 mph.

                      I had this part since 2005, i had bought it for a 1991 ford Bronco full size. it had been sitt'n on my shelf for 5 years. I diagnosed a 2002 Nissan Xterra SE RWD, and come to find out the front U-joint at the transmission was blown. Now we asked Advance, Autozone, Napa, and the Dealership and come to find out they don't list a specific U-joint for this vehicle. apperantly you have to buy the driveshaft to get the u-joint. well we ordered the driveshaft from Autozone and it was the wrong part, so i went ahead and measured the good U-joint on the diff side to the u-joint i had on the shelf, guess what it worked. So i'm tell'n you that Part # 1-0153BF works on this nissan. the Driveshaft ended up costing $449.00 were as the U-joint cost [$] you do the math.

                          Please realize that even though the name is a "universal joint" the term universal does not mean it is a universal part and one size fits most. That advice is in every way wrong. The fact that it may say fits 2 wheel but not 4 wheel is because there is a different size universal joint used in that application either bigger or smaller end caps or longer arms. You just need to identify the dimensions of the part needed and buy accordingly. Try forms for jeeps and google is your friend. Do not go by the advice listed in these Q&As. Cheers
