U-Joints for 2004 F-150
I'm having trouble finding the correct U joints for my 2004 F150. I have the extended cab, 4.6 engine and 2 wheel drive. I've been to both O'Reilly's and AutoZone with no luck. I purchased three U joints from O'Reilly's, installed them but they don't fit correctly. There's a gap between the cross and the cap on all three joints. I called Ford to get their part number, which when crossed reference came back to the same U Joint I'd purchased from O'Reillys. The cross is the same size, but the original U joints have a taller cap than either O'Reilly's or AutoZone. We also looked at U Joints from a year earlier all the way up to 4 years later with no luck. Has anyone else had this problem. I'm in a real bind here.
