SPRINTER VANS - INCLUDING MERCEDES AND FREIGHTLINER
Driveshaft Specialist offers Complete New Driveshafts for Sprinter products that are far better than the original driveshafts that were installed on the vehicles.
The OE shafts have a staked in non-replaceable universal joint. This means that if one U-Joint fails on the Sprinter driveshaft the dealer wants to sell you a complete new driveshaft, the same one that has another non-replaceable U-Joint.
We offer brand new complete driveshafts that have a larger, stronger field replaceable standard 1350 series U-Joints. We use a Spicer XL U-Joint which is the best U-Joint available, but you can get the 1350 series U-Joint at any auto parts store.

Parts Quality and Maintenance Warning
You can buy the 1350 U-Joints at any parts store (not the Spicer XL) but we STRONGLY suggest you do not buy some cheapo Chinese U-Joint that the Parts Stores carry because they are CHEAP!. Please ask for a USA made U-Joint. The Parts Store (USA) Joints are OK but not near the quality of the Spicer XL. You will need to grease them often, like every 6-10,000 miles. If you don't they will fail in less than 20k miles. The Spicer XL is on average $6-10 bucks more than a Parts Store joint but it will usually outlast them by 5 times at a minimum.
