Can anyone tell me the correct U-Joint for the Dana 30 axle shafts?

I thought I had done my research and ordered two Moog 260 u-Joints as it seemed those were the proper size. That turns out to not be the case and now I am stumped. I have the OEM front diff and axle shafts on my 81 CJ7 as far as I can tell.

Any help is greatly appreciated as my U-joints are starting to give up the ghost.

You are 100% correct......
It is the Spicer 5-260 for the axles of the Dana 30.
My deepest apologies for MY error!

Aren't the Moog 260 ad Spicer 5-260 the same size? That is what my research says.
