Needle bearing universal joints have the distinct advantage of lasting much longer than non-needle bearing u-joints. Performance Online recommends only needle bearing u-joints for use on street vehicles. Our u-joints are made of specially selected steel and aluminum for strength and longevity. The sealed precision needle bearings never need maintenance. Available is stainless and polished stainless steel see product options. Stainless steel shown.

  • Needle bearing u-joints outlast non needle bearing joints by a factor of 10 to 1.
  • Needle bearing joints have zero backlash (radial play) for more precise steering and better road feel.
  • Non-needle bearing joints should be lubricated with each use and a rubber boot must be used to retain lubrication.
  • Boots are not required for use with needle bearing joints.
  • Any of our 4 Double D (a round shaft with two flats) sizes available.
  • 14 different spline size yokes available
  • Can be combined to mate components from many different manufacturers.
  • Operates at angles up to 35 degrees.

With our components, you could easily connect a GM column to a new Mustang rack and pinion or Ford column to a Saginaw box. Similar to OEM u-joints, the staked needle bearing caps prevent loosening and adjustment malfunction.
