I like the longfield u joint design better than yukon and the new stub shaft from Yukon has more meat on it so I have the adjust my steering stops.

Driver side stub did not hold up this weekend, how ever the Longfeild joint did .
I do need to get new caps for the u-joints and Yukon should warranty the stub
