Go to your local parts store and tell them what you need. Easy as that..

Holy Sheep Sh!t. Sooooo much mis information.

For the rear driveshaft...Your U-joints are most likely 1410 series, they could possibly be 1480. but chances are they are 1410.

For your front driveshaft they are mechanics 3R or Saginaw S44, which is the same thing, just different names used by different manufacturers.

Do not under any circumstance buy U-joints from Napa or anyplace that is reboxing precision brand U-joints. They are the bottom of the barrel and loose when they are new.

Never had a issue with ujoints from Napa. Installed several when I was in a shop. They never had any issues.

Thats mostly because a slight vibration seems like the job is " done" when compared to a falling out U-joint.

99 times out of 100 a driveshaft that has had precision U-joints installed is not balanceable.

Do you think that a brand new U-joint having an 1/8" of play is acceptable? Thats what you will get from napa, as well as fischer auto parts, Federal mogul and Moog branded U-joints.
