Need a U-Joint part #

My 95 is a regular cab and the set of u-joints on the front drive shaft which connects to the shaft coming out of the transfer case are shot.Just wondering if both joints are the same or are different and if anybody has the part # for them thanks.

The joints are the same. They're also hell to replace. It usually isn't the joints that are bad, but the centering ball. Therefore, you buy the yoke that has the ball in it, then pray that the pin on the driveshaft that it mates to isn't bad. If it is, you're buying a driveshaft.

Mine was a little bit worn, but not worn enough to pay $275 for a damn driveshaft. The truck probly does a thousand miles a year in 4x4 anyway. That being said, I've had no binding or noise issues since replacing it. I think I paid $42 for a spicer yoke and like $17 a pop for the u-joints. The needle bearings in the ball socket like to fall down, which will cause you to crack the yoke when you put the u-joints in. I put those caps on one at a time, and make sure you keep the ball part of the yoke on the pin the whole time.
