That set is already in a secure location. I have several D60 shafts laying around.

Mine have lasted all summer with lots of abuse. They seem to be in good shape still, but I will replace them probably next spring I'd into have issues with them before.

Mine have a year of abuse on them....apparently they were stronger than the stock shaft so i guess we will see. I am not really that crazy behind the wheel so hopefully i will be fine.

I also forgot to mention that the long side stock inner was also visibly twisted....not much but it was there....it didn't have many runs left i don't believe.

I snapped a Spicer at twisted in the spring. Took out my yukon inner/outer on that side.

Got some yukon super joints from Ironman to replace the spicers.

I ran my stock 60 joints (literally the ones from 1978) for about 4 years before I upgraded to Super Joints. They were still good but showing signs of movement. Unless you drive it really hard you should be OK.

Good to hear.

I think they will get me by for a few runs till i can get super joints with no issue. Then again, i really didn't think i would break a stock inner with a <100hp 4 cylinder so what do i know.

Put full circle clips in and ur good. I've been running Spicers for 5 years now, I've had caps back out even with my full circle clips. Broke 2 sets of inners with these Spicers never had an issue with joints.

I did....full circle clips all around

I would think, at this point, the stock Toyota u joints in the drive shafts would be the next weakest link. Time will tell i suppose
