      Comments about MOOG Driveline Products U Joint:

      Quieted the Jeep down quite a bit! The stock joints were worn right out! These are nice heavy duty joints. They are greasable but don't come with a grease zerk, just a plug. You need to remove the plug to grease them. Not too happy about that but other wise they seem fine.

        Comments about MOOG Driveline Products U Joint:

        There are about a million opinions out there about which U-Joints are best and which to avoid. These seem to be a healthy choice to me. They seem sturdy and the movement is very smooth and consistent right out of the box. I dropped a cap on the floor while assembling these in my driveshaft and the thick red grease they use kept the pins from moving (saved me a big headache). Assembly (once I stopped dropping things) was a breeze. The caps slid on nice and smooth and seated easily. Once assembled, I could feel a huge difference in how easily the driveshaft components moved. After I installed the driveshaft and greased them up, the test-drive sealed the deal. These things run cool and smooth as butter. I would use these again. I like Moog, despite some of the bad reviews out there. You have to be careful not to let the pins get misaligned or fall into the bottom of the cap when installing these (and all U-Joints) or they will eat themselves quickly... Probably where all the bad reviews come from.

            A:

            I'm glad to assist David. In the MOOG Universal Joints there is a regular grease fitting in the cross body. There is a technical document from MOOG that provides a cutaway of the design here: http://fme-cat.com/LiveDocs/MOOG Universal Joint sell sheet.pdf
