The UJ's on my propshaft need replacing.

Can anyone recommend any specific replacements please? I have the part number (MB000948) and I realise
several sellers (Milners, Mitzy Bitz) do them, but was just wondering if anyone had any experience with any
specific ones, alternatives, etc.
There are Blue Print badged aftermarket ones I've found online for a really good price. Any views on those?

Thank you!

Now a bit of 'odd' advice from me.

There used to be a company called Quinton Hazel, in Wales, which made high end quality car components for OE companies, who were bought out by an Indian company, in 2013, whilst they lowered the prices considerably.

The Quinton Hazel company name, but not the actual manufacturing plant, was bought by a company in Wigan, who made similar named items, but not similar quality, with higher prices, who now sell their stuff as Quinton Hazel brand.

BLUE PRINT raised their prices a few years back, to try and take back the end user market from the autofactors they were selling to at a discount; So they could sell direct with a better profit margin. Many Autofactors started selling Quinton Hazel branded stuff - from Wigan - instead.

The MitzyBits item is sold at £15.99 on Ebay, which seems identical to my preferred seller FEBEST (£21.23), in Germany, who also produce OEM stuff.
The Quinton Hazel branded one is £27.96, which appears to be the same.

Take a look at the build quality of them here:-

But take extra note of where the grease nipple is on the BLUE PRINT one (BLUE PRINT ADC43903)

I think I did mine with Milner's products 3 years/10,000 miles ago, and seem to be still okay. If I can find them,  I generally go for Blue Print, as I have never, so far, had a bad experience with their stuff.

Thanks very much both, that's really useful. I'll have another look. I'm pretty tempted by the Blue Print ones because of the deal I found, but I'll see if I can find any Febest ones too.

okay, I actually found some Febest ones for an even better price... they should hopefully be in the post soon.
I like the idea of having the grease nipple on one of the joints rather than in the middle.
Will report back when fitting/fitted.
Thanks again for advice!
