      Yes, sir.Only one part number for all AWD DSMs.
    • DSSA
      Side note: All of this batch of Yokes have been sold while I was on vacation (over-sold, in fact).A couple (3 I believe) u-joints are left.
    • DSSA
      No. They should provide the adapter yoke. That said, if rebuilding, you'd still need the rear-most Mitsu u-joint if memory serves me correctly.
    • DSSA
      Good call.Unless they're idiots like me when I was using three kits to rebuild driveshafts and throwing 2 yokes in the trash "because they were cheap".
    • DSSA
      A lot of them are complaining that they can't get the DSM units anymore. They seem to be in the same boat.
    • DSSA
      The SKF units seem to be similar. They look more like the Suzuki Samurai units.Fun fact---we can blame those guys as well for buying up the MR470072 recall kits---or thank them for keeping demand up. I'm not sure which they contributed to...

      Marty, the Power Train Components ones seem to be copies of the newer-style U-joints from Mitsu (MR196899) that are used in the Outlanders, etc. The cross shaft design profile is pretty thin unlike the OEM "beefed up" version.:

      Now at 2 yokes and 3 u-joints.,,,
    • DSSA
      Short answer is: "Yes".The aftermarket units are typically much weaker and often snap. I've spent months trying to find suitable replacements that are as strong as the OEM ones. The main issue is that the aftermarket ones are grease-able...

      A side note to this......We would LOVE to kick Mitsu in the butt with production on these before they discontinue them like they have a lot of other parts for these cars.*IF* you're just looking to stockpile some away, *AND* you're willing to...

      UPDATE: 1 Yoke and 4 u-joints leftSo, the last post was 01/26 of this year about getting a few of these in: https://www.dsmtuners.com/threads/a-very-few-u-joints-and-yokes-back-in-stock-for-the-moment.536591/While we have these on constant...

      The Gates ones typically have "533" cast into them as well, but Gates is known to often change their products. For a while, they had the same idler pulley in their kits that Mitsu uses, now they don't. Their water pumps went from being similar...

      This.This is the explanation. No other is needed. They've been this way for a good part of two decades now.

      UPDATE: All of the people who were in the order for the available units have now been sent tracking and the final 10 are going out today.For those of you who placed orders on the reserve list (MW, WC, Etc.) I'm still digging and hopeful that...

      Did you actually bleed the clutch hydraulics correctly?If the answer is "Yes. I had someone pump the pedal, hold it down, then I opened the bleed screw on the slave cylinder and closed it <rinse/repeat>" then you didn't.
    • DSSA
      A couple of things come to mind. The idle switch is very similar, and just simple contact. The Hyundai version is much cheaper, and I've seen some shady people selling the Hyundai one on Ebay, etc., claiming it's a Mitsu unit. Selling it for...

      I appreciate the kind words, Marty!This is my job. While I want to support these cars, it's a two way street. If I can keep us in parts (I say "us" as I need a lot of these parts as well for my own vehicles) it helps you guys *and* me. I...

      You've always put in the "HARD" work Josh and I just want you to know how much WE ALL APPRECIATE YOU! Phone tag that ends up a dead end is frustrating and takes up your time. Time isn't free and you can't get it back. You are doing a hell of a...
    • DSSA
      Welcome to the frustration! I'm happy (tongue-in-cheek) to hear that Hyundai's inventory control is about as good as Mitsu's. If I see that Mitsu is showing "1" of anything, I forewarn customers "3 out of 10 times they show "1", it ends up...
