the u-joints should be original (as is the rest of the car ), but i'll check 'em.
had the brakes flushed when i got the car last fall, i think ps needs it too though.
the radiator is needs a flushin too, but that seems to have sprung a leak (as of the last time i ran the car- only while running). i believe it is coming from the upper rad hose. so that is my next project.
