Needle bearing universal joints are machined with state of the art CNC equipment. On-going engineering and testing ensures that we offer the strongest, safest and smoothest operating steering universal joint available today. Needle bearing universal joints have the distinct advantage of lasting nearly 10 times longer than non-needle bearing joints. We recommend only needle bearing universal joints for vehicles that are used on the street. Needle bearing universal joints have no backlash or radial play. They are permanently lubricated and sealed and require no maintenance. Single universal joints will operate smoothly at angles up to 35°. Angles over 35° can be accommodated by using a double universal joint.
