Installed these myself in my 2000 Dodge Ram 4x4 in the rear driveshaft. If you have ever replaced a driveshaft its a two person job. The only complaint I had was there was very little grease in the bearing cups to hold the bearings in place and they would fall out easily when installing. Added a little grease and all is well. Pumped full of grease and they should be good to go. Best thing is I can add more grease when I"m under there changing oil like the old days.

          The part was a great mach. it fit real nice and I personally believe it may be better than the OE part because, It has the grease fitting which means you can regrease the part without having to take the whole thing back off. Great product for my car!

                              Ten years ago I bought a pair of 2-4800 u-joints from Advance & installed them on my Ford. Now, researching u-joints on the Advance site dopesn't show the 2-4800 as being able to fit my car. So, I got on the Neapco site & used their parts catalog. According to Neapco, a 2-4800 will fit my Ford, but Advance site tells me no. Why is this?
