AC Delco U-Joints
I figured that since GM sold Sidekicks, that AC-Delco 45U0016 U-joints would probably do ok, especially since I'm still running stock size tires with no lift. I replaced all 6 u-joints shortly after I bought the Samurai, because the middle and rear shafts were clanking and I had a vibration I though might be U-Joint related.
In retrospect, I should have left the front ones alone, as they were OEM Suzuki, and had no play, but I went ahead and replaced them as well.
About 15,000 miles later, my rear shaft is clanking, and when I checked it, there was noticeable play.
Just ordered a set of OEM Suzuki U-joints... Ouch, but I don't want to do that job again for a while...
