Default Local U-Joints

I need front u-joints, and I can't find anybody local that sells spicer stuff. Just Percision. I don't know anything about Percision, but I know Spicers are some of the best. Where can I get some Spicers, or do I just need to order them on the web?

Auto value can get them through Their A1 truck warehouse. They stock a decent amount, but not all of them.
