Features & Benefits

Duralast Gold universal joints are manufactured to meet or exceed original equipment specifications. This results in a better fit, reduced vibration and less maintenance. Duralast Gold journal crosses are heat-treated and engineered to maximize life. We use a solid forged cross body to increase joint strength for rigorous loads. Our Duralast Gold u-joints come pre-greased with synthetic lithium grease minimizing installation time and providing a worry free product that never requires maintenance. Our nitrile rubber seals are long wearing and abrasion resistant. They optimize grease retention and prevent contamination. Anti-corrosion coating allows you to use Duralast Gold u-joints on vehicles originally equipped with aluminum drive shafts or aftermarket upgrades.

  • Never needs greasing - factory filled with synthetic lithium grease
  • Solid forged cross-body to increase joint strength for rigorous loads
  • Precision ground needle bearings for higher load carrying capacity
  • Nitrile rubber seal engineered to reduce seal surface friction
  • Manufactured in TS16949 certified facilities

    Did not make 5000 miles

    Just to qualify my comment,I am an ASE certified mechanic with nearly 30 years of professional experience. This was my first experience with the Duralast Gold U-joint (I typically use another well-known name brand). Installed on a customer's S10 approximately 4500 miles ago. Vehicle came back today with a driveline vibration, it was the new Duralast Gold U-joint that had gone bad. Going back to my other brand on this vehicle and from now on.

    I generally like Autozone's Duralast Gold line, but this joint is to be avoided.

    Pros: None

    Cons: Extremely short life

    Didn?t even last 10,000 miles. Serious vibration from this failed inferior product has caused my rear diff seal to leak. Limited lifetime warranty, however I will not replace with another Duralast Gold. Spend the money and get a ?quality? U-joint, otherwise you will end up like me with an expensive additional repair caused by this cheap junk.

    Pros: None

    Cons: Not Durable
