What's in the Box

Info

Don't jeopardize your safety with inferior quality steering components. Speedway offers only the finest steering u-joints available. Made by Sweet Manufacturing. These steering universal joints have 3/4 weld-on ends.

  • Full compliment bearings
  • Forged Vanadium steel yokes and u-joint
  • Highest quality for racing
  • Features needle bearing u-joints
  • U-Joint=3.875" L x 1.375" D

Learn more about u-joints and steering systems by reading our tech article. U-Joint Selection and Design.

 

Application

When purchasing U-Joints, 3 easy steps will help ensure that they will be correct for your application.

STEP 1
Be sure to measure the diameter of the shaft and count the number of splines on the shaft. Some shafts have a blank spot ground on one side. To get the correct number of splines, use a flat edge and cover the blank half of the shaft through the diameter and count the splines on the other half. Multiply that number by 2, thus giving you the total number of splines on the full circumference of the shaft.

STEP 2
Choose which shaft type best suits your application: 3/4" weld on, 3/4" DD or 1" DD.

STEP 3
With these two pieces of information at hand, refer to our chart to find the appropriate part number of the u-joint for your specific application.

Notes

Tech Tip #1: When using more than two universal joints in a system, a support heim must be used.

Tech Tip #2: Increasing a U-Joint's angle of operation beyond 30° dramatically increases the stress on the joint, weakening the whole steering mechanism. If a greater angle is needed, add another u-joint.

Great Product!

March 30, 2016
I have bought these ujoints from Speedway for many years and I have NEVER had a failure--even when I've had a bad crash. They just hold up well. The price is also fair. Get a good welder to weld them on instead of bolting as a bolt will wear and you will have slop in the steering.
Pros:
  • Heavy Duty And Built For
Yes, I recommend this product.

These are a good value for the money, just a little tough to get apart and reassemble when welding to the shaft.

I take it that this universal joint is smooth bore both ends and will weld to a 3/4 shaft each end? Does the welding hurt the needle rollers?

Yes this joint is made to weld both ends of it to the steering shaft. The amount of heat that makes it to the universal joint itself does not affect it.
