Lack of lubrication is the most common cause for U-Joint failure because most U-Joints are not serviceable from the factory. As the lubricant disappears, the needle bearings wear away, causing squeaks from metal-to-metal contact and/or clunks from excessive clearance between the cross and bearing cups. In extreme cases the U-Joints can bind and cause a vibration at low speed.
U-Joints can also fail from abuse. Changing from drive to reverse before the vehicle comes to a full stop can excessively strain or break a U-Joint. Operating at angles for which the joint was not designed, such as when the ride height is changed by lifting or overloading the vehicle, can also cause joint failure.
Omix-Ada has the replacement U-Joints that will restore driveline performance. They're greasable, so you can add U-joint lubrication to your maintenance routine, and come with the grease zerk and mounting clips.
