Hi chaps

I think I need to change my UJ's as I seem to have lost some drive at the low end of my revs and I have heard a whirring/chirping noise which I believe is a symptom of worn UJ's

I am due to drive up to the Lake District soon and don't want to lose a propshaft on the way! I will change them all - better to be safe than sorry ;)

I have a 1992 Defender 90 200Tdi. Please can someone tell me which are the UJ's for me. Also, if anyone has recommendations I would be grateful.

I have seen these:

Rear Propshaft UJ's

Front Propshaft UJ's

And one other question: are any specialist tools required or will a spanner/socket set do?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give

Thanks Western,

having become even more confused by that I looked up what the chassis numbers mean and i found these useful guides:

Chassis Numbering

Chassis Numbering

I think I understand now. That is the same Part Number for the rear prop too so I take it that means they are for both the front and rear?

Also, I might be being a bit thick here, but what year is denoted by the letter C at the beginning of the last 8 digits?

Thanks again
