The universal joint is an important part in your car, and it can be found at the end of the vehicle's propshaft. The universal joint, also called a UJ, makes it possible for your rear axle to safely move up and down where the gearbox is concerned.

As is the case with car parts, the universal joint is prone to wear and tear over the time, which can lead to the part failing. At this point it’s necessary to replace the universal joint.

When shopping for a new universal joint keep a couple things in mind:

  • Warranty: Be sure to look for a universal joint that has a warranty available on it, which should be the case with a brand new part.

  • Various inserts: Be sure to look into the different inserts. There are universal joints that feature a spring lock clip that is removable, or there are those with plastic inserts. The ones with the plastic inserts tend to be more labor-intensive to replace.

The universal joint should always be kept in good condition, so if you have any doubts about yours, be sure to get it looked at sooner rather than later.

Jeep Wrangler - Universal Joint (U-joint) - Charlotte, North Carolina
Nice guy. Despite a couple of snags beyond his control that caused it taking well over the quoted time and charges, he hung in there and completed the change out. No complaints. Keep in mind that these guys are locked into the quote, no matter how long it takes. I'd request him if I need on the spot service again.
