Where to buy Spicer u-joints?

It's time to replace the u-joints in my 86 Suburbans front axle and I would like to use Spicer joints. Does anyone one know if any of the big chain stores carry them?

I know car quest has them but I'm sure that nappa or any of the other major auto parts stores should carry them as well.

Federated Auto Parts Chain here in VA carries them. Don't know if you have those where you live.

Napa in my neck of the woods only sells Precision Car Quest has some cheep shit joints as well. The ONLY place I could find in the Rouge Valley that had/sold the Spicers was a drive line shop (and only 1 out of the 3 in town)

Find a place that builds driveshafts such as fleetpride. No auto parts stores around here sell spicer axle joints.

I used to work at Carquest and they sure as hell didn't sell any Spicer ujoints that I was aware of. They were rebadged Neapcos, afaik.

Then your carquest sucked,

I know for a fact the one in town here always keeps 6, 5-760X's on the shelf at one time, which my wheeler uses up front

They also had the the 1350 for my 1 ton in stock(3 of them) 5-799X

As well as the 1330's and ford 1330's that both my rigs use in the front driveshafts, 5-790x and 5-792x

Of course they also carry neapco's... but its pretty easy too tell the difference, being that one says carquest on the box, and has a 4-4900, and the other says spicer on the box, and has 5-792X on it..

No shit

At my store all we had were the Neapco/Carquest labeled joints. No spicers of any kind, we may have been able to order them but we did not have any spicer books sitting around (or I would have found them and dug thru 'em).

Must be the franchisee's decision, or a regional thing. I don't know why we didn't have them if every other carquest does.

Around here the local Big rig shop (where everyone in our club gets out ds's made) carriers a full stock of em.....and they're cheaper than the shitty ones you find anywhere else.

A local independent store near me used to sell Spicer stuff. As soon as Carquest got their greasy hands on the place and took it over, they suddenly no longer carried Spicer anymore. I asked one of the counter guys there why, and the dumbass tried to tell me that Spicer had been bought by Moog
