Get the "Brute Force" joints, without the grease fittings...you'll never have to worry about them again...at least not unless you're planing on using nitrous, or a blower....and even then you'll wind up breaking something else first!

The outfit that is going to shorten my driveshaft uses "Spicer" brand U-Joints. The guy there swears by them.
Right away I could see where this was going so I told him to proceed. I hate to waste good advice but I had some difficulty finding a place to cut the driveshaft on a street car. I want to keep the ball rolling here. Any opinions on the "Spicer" brand U-Joints? (w.o. grease fittings)

Pace Car is in the hands of a new caretaker.
I'm surely no expert on this kind of stuff, but from the little research and reading I've done on this if the guy is telling you Spicer with no zerks then I believe he knows his stuff and is pointing you in the right direction.
Ain't nothin wrong with Spicers,theyre used on almost every heavy duty truck on the highway,if they can dump the clutch with 80,000 lbs behind them, they should handle your Vette,course they are a little lighter
