Eliminate backlash

Zinc coated to prevent corrosion

Made in USA

  • U joints use caged needle bearings with a slight preload to completely eliminate backlash
  • Bearing trunnion is a single piece of hardened chromium-vanadium steel
  • Grease seals are high-durometer fluorocarbon O-rings in compression against the end surfaces of the needle bearing cups
  • Seals will resist sustained oven-level heat and will retain the bearing grease under severe conditions

⚠️ Off-road use only. To be able to achieve the most direct steering feel, RACE GERMAN u joints are precisely machined to have the least amount of play. The OEM u joint uses a pinch bolt, making the tolerances a lot larger when installing. These u joints use set screws and the tolerances are a higher to reduce any slop in the steering. Please make sure your splines are cleaned and not marred up. You may need to tap the u joint on with a rubber or dead blow hammer. Please do not use a metal hammer to hit the steering shaft on. If for any reason you can not get the u joint on, do not force, and email [email protected]
