Best place to get u-joints?

Anyone have a good no-nonsense parts source online where I can buy u-joints? Maybe part numbers too? I'm looking at installing a Spyntec kit since my passenger side unit bearing hub failed last night. (the drivers side one failed last year) NAPA and AutoZone and places like that, do not have any parts for a 2010, not even brake calipers.(they do have brake pads. Whoopy-doo) I happen to know the u-joints for the front axles will cost at least $130 each at the dealership. Anybody know a cheaper source? I tried Rock Auto online but it's parts index was a mess and confusing, no way to narrow down the choices on there.

I bought a pair of Spicer U-joints (1480? I think..) from my 3rd gens front axle for $50 each online. Had a local shop install them for $25 each but I handed him the axle shafts already pulled from my truck.

By far the best at actually knowing what u-joint goes with what years... And the best price I could find when I put them in my 2003

8 Lug is good, I have also called around to local driveline shops and gone that route. Recently I was able to pick up front axle Spicer u-joints for 55 a piece from a local shop who installed them both for $30. I pulled my axles and brought them in, they did the install=
