Default U Joints

hey guys i was just wondering who makes a good U Joint. I go through u joints like candy and i havent found anything that will hold up to turning the 35" tires on my truck.

Any suggestions?

does your truck have a two piece drive shaft, how are the angles on them, maybe theres a shim missing on the carrier bearing, if they are off it can really trash u joints

yes it does have a two piece. . . i only have a problem with the one that connects to the rear end. . . i had the angles checked when i put the lift in and they said it was good to go. . . i have the biggest problems when i pull a trailer or go on really long road trips.

You could have a bad case of axle wrap. How much lift do you have and is it by springs or blocks?
