HD U-Joints for D30???

I keep finding them for the 44, but not the 30? Can someone point me in the right direction?

Which are compatible with factory shafts? Saw the CTM require full circle clips.

I used the Spicer 5-760x in my d30. You can find them on ebay for ~$20

I don't know if you could use a regular clip or not. It seems pretty counter productive to put in a hd u-joint and not use full circle clips or stock shafts since the most common failures are losing the caps and egged out ears on the yolk.

Just slap some cheap spicers in there until you can get some chromoly shafts or have your stock shafts machined.

Assuming you're not going to swap out for RVCs, the CTMs are basically bulletproof, you'll snap the shafts first. There are a couple others out there too, Nitro & OX come to mind. OTOH, the 760x's are pretty strong and will work just fine. They're the standard u-joint on the old D44s. (Used to be coded 297x.) Those shafts are pretty stout. Spyntec specifies them on their manual hub conversions for the JK, even the Rubis. Whatever you chose, by all means use the full snap rings.
