Anyone have a good source for steering U joints?

I know about these http://www2.cip1.com/ProductDetails.asp ... D425%2D160 (http://www2.cip1.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=C26%2D425%2D160) but they have splined shafts which I need for the rack, but I don't want to have to use the little stubs welded inside tubing to get the rest of it.

Most other places are charging around $50 or more for a joint, and I will probably need 3 of them. Just doesn't seem right to pay more for steering joints than I can buy a axle for.

30.00 for joint and spline, from dansperformanceparts.com, if you use splines yopu can take apart. 8) just my opinion, that is how i am doing mine.

If this helps. Surplus Center sells car ujoints for about $6.00 each. They work great and are used in full sized cars. They have a site in the internet.

Just a thought on steering u-joints.

Do not skimp on this part. *It is directly related to your safety. *A cheap u-joint, while probably okay, has a much higher probability of failure than a high quality unit.

Howe offers a wide arrange of U-joints. (http://www.howeperformance.com/accessories-ujoints.htm:2gt205de)

You can get them in splined, weld on and a combination of spline and weld.

When it comes down to it, there are three things that I feel (just my opinion, so take it for what it's worth) that you should not shop for the economy value item: *5-point harness, steering components, brakes.

I agree but there's not really much you can skimp on when it is safety related and for that matter what doesn't impact our safety in these things in one way or the other?
