u joint, can't find the right one. help!

this has been a week long process and I'm out of ideas. I have a 95 RCLB f250. my rear u joints gave out (originals with 120k). but now I can't find the right replacement. I tried two different parts suppliers (excluding ford) and every u joint it calls for, the cup is too small and can push them in by hand instead of pressing them and they spin in the shaft and the yoke. the book said the joints were 1.188" and the old ones measure 1.187" and yet they are too small. I also tried older trucks and newer and none work. does anyone have any advice.

Is there a driveline shop local to you? Take the stuff (shaft and joints) down there and have them match it. That's where I went when I needed u-joints on my 94. Cheers!

I don't think so. the old ones took some force to get out. just like the new ones should to go in.

tried that. tried from 88-99, f150-f450. even tried some Chevy and dodge. no luck. only ones I haven't tried were new spicers from ford, they take a day to get.

RCLB 97 Every after market Ujoint I tried went in snug then started spinning the caps shortly there after. The only ones that fit right and lasted came from FORD. Cheaper in the long run to buy from FORD.
