Spicer Ujoint  numbers

344 or 343. Best to take one with you to the parts counter to compare.

From D-90.com

Checking back through my archive of list correspondence (thanks James Pierce and Charles Morris), the consensus is:
"The front are Precision part no. 369, the factory part no. is RTC 4587 and they sell for $103.93 ea. at your local dealer. You can purchase 369s from any parts store, because they are used in many chev. applications, for around $9.00.

The rear are 344s, the factory part no. is RTC 3458 and sell for $74.44 ea. at the dealer. You can get these at the parts house for approx. $20.00."

Subject: RE: [D90] U-Joints

Front: Spicer 5-4X
Rear: Spicer 5-153X

Also, the rear heavy duty UJ from Precision is 280


i thought they were the same front & rear?!

i have two, each sourced from different places. I think they were both about

$35 each

GMB Corp (japanese) PN# 220-1100

Beck/Arnley (british) PN# 102-0490

each are identical to the other, and greasable


For RR '86 and later the U-joints are same front and rear, if you have

manual gearbox (LR part no RTC4587).

In case of automatic the front U-joints are same as older RR's use (LR part

no GUJ117).

Even LR has several other part numbers that fit, I know the following


RTC4587 - RTC3458 and TVC100010

GUJ117 - RTC3346

 Napa (as well as most other auto

parts stores carry them). The Napa part number is wrong though. As I

recall their ;isting for a series Rover has the right part number. I think

it's also the same as for a Triumph TR6 too. Sorry, but I don't have it

here. Good luck.



Rear UJoint:

Thanks, I did find and replace it. Its a 344. Available just about

anywhere. thanks to everyone who chimed in and helped out.

It's a standard U-Joint and cost less than $20US, but I do not have the part

number. I removed the driveshaft (propshaft) and brought it to a local

driveline shop. They replace both U-Joints for about $70US.

I had tried to replace one on the RR myself the first time and screwed it

up. It's a bit more difficult than the ones on my Blazer. It's more cost

effective for me to bring the whole driveshaft to the shop.
