Our parts are as close to OEM as you can get, and in many cases, they’re even better than OEM parts for antique cars. Those who are working on restoring their first classic car may not realize right away that they need a universal joint rebuild kit. Although a universal joint looks fairly straightforward, the way it operates and the job it does for your classic car is quite complex. At its most basic, it is an essential element of the suspension system, enabling you to steer and direct your car. Today, universal joints are intended to last for the life of a vehicle, and they come pre-lubricated so you never have to add grease. However, back in the day of classic cars, replacing universal joints was fairly common. Classic Car Parts: U-Joints When you are restoring your antique car and you are unsure whether it is necessary to replace the u-joints, it’s better to err on the side of caution. Having this part break down while you’re driving could be catastrophic, and it may be especially difficult — or even impossible — to get the classic car parts you need to repair your vehicle after an accident. Universal joints can break for a number of reasons, but the main ones are rust and wear and tear — two situations that are almost unavoidable with a classic car, especially if it has not been garaged for a period of time. Other reasons include improper installation and excessive vibration over time.
