I have a 1969 Kingswood Estate wagon and I'm getting ready to start some transmission work (filter, fluid, output seal). I figured I might as well change the U-Joints as they're original to the car and it has 99,000 miles on it and is 51 years old. The car has a 350 TH trans and 12-bolt rear.
Considering the average guy behind parts counters today cannot do anything but look into his computer screen and regurgitate the notes therein, I'm reaching out to my fellow SS 427 brethren.
1. Are there differences in the U-Joints from auto trans to manual trans? I figured the yoke designs would be different but I'm not sure about the U-Joints.
2. Does anyone know where I can get USA made U-Joints for my wagon?
