The original replacement joint is a 5-332x which run about 70 bucks. You can run the pn SPL55-3x which are about 32 bucks. These are a snap-tite series joint that have better seals and a forged cross. The reason for the cost difference is the 5-332x is a dedicated wheel joint, where the SPL55-3x is used in drivelines as well as wheel joints.

ok word from six states is:

"the SPL55-3x ($32) joint is the same strength as the 5-332x ($70), and it (SPL55-3x $32) has a better seal."

well?
any thoughts?

Just that you already had the word of SixStates opn the prior post.

The snaptight seal so far has done no better or worse for me on keeping water out of the joint. I've broken one of the 5-760 sizes, but that may not have been the fault of the joint. Try the Snaptight, the price is right, and it can not be any worse.
