OK, so this weekend at the Cleghorn Meet, I sheared the bracket that holds my rear U-Joint to my axle, and I need the part number to order...

I called Performance Nissan in Duarte, and they told me I have to buy the whole axle, which I'm pretty sure is BS because Pro2x bought one for his axle conversion (his was a 6 bolt, I need the four bolt). I have a few numbers off of the part, but they're all Spicer numbers and the Google has yeilded crap for parts.

I even tried the Dana/Spicer website, and that was an exercise in futility. Following the links to order parts led me to numerous dead end pages.

I'm planning on calling an axle repair shop tomorrow, but the only one I know of in the Pasadena area is out of business...

Soooooo... If anyone knows a part number so I can order one (or two) from a parts store, that would be great. Or, if anyone knows of a good axle repair shop that may carry the part, that would be awesome, also.

I've included a picture that has the part before it broke. Its the bracket that holds the U-Joint to the Pinion Yoke. I'll post a picture of the aftermath tomorrow.

The spicer numbers I got were:
PD1 Spicer
5002312
41201



Ohh, and I need a carrier bearing as well. The dealership wants $86. Anyone know of a cheaper place?

Thanks.

I found one guy that custom builds driveshafts that _MAY_ have the part...

The spicer number is 5002312. He has one that is 5002313. I sent him pics with measurements and he's going to get back to me.

Also, here are the pics of my broken one...

This is a little off topic but are you running a carrier bearing drop bracket? That driveline angle looks a bit extreme but I am not sure if that is at full droop or not.

That is actually part of the driveshaft, not the axle. So if a dealer told you that they don't know what they are talking. The axle side of that coupling is the companion flange, which appears to be OK on yours.

Well, as far as the driveline angle, it is awful... I had broken my AAL, and had thrown those cheap blocks in to get the height I need to clear the tires. They had no slope to them, and I only ran them for a week (with no off road use) until I got the parts for my new setup. That pic is with the blocks in and the bed off.

As far as the part, I was able to track one down with part # 5002313 not the 5002312 I need. But after talking to a guy at Inland Empire Driveline Specialists, I confirmed that they are interchangeable. (He talked directly to his Dana Spicer Rep) I ordered two, just in case.

Next I have to re-weld the spring perches, throw in the new carrier bearing, and I'm set.

Well, a little update... I got the parts that I ordered. I ordered the 5002313 (because I was told they would work) and when they came in, they were stamped with 5002312 (the part I was originally looking for).

I don't know if it was an error that just happened to work out for me, or if they are simply interchangeable parts.

Either way, the part is in and the truck is running fine.

And here's a little teaser of what I did while waiting for the parts to arrive...
