The U-Joint is a un-serviceable unit, nothing to service so there is no preventable maintenance.

Failure reports are uncommon and those reported seem to be after 100,000 miles with the 150,000 mile range being the most common of the few reported.
It is not a high failure number reported.

I'm not saying replace it just be aware at six figure mileage the U-Joint has served well and if your thinking of putting 200,000 on having one is not a bad idea.

Joint, Yoke 40200-MCS-G00
Oil Seal (27x43x7) 91261-ME9-005
Ring, Stopper 40221-MBO-000
Boot, Joint 52104-MCS-G00

I do not know ST availability in Mexico but in the U.S. we are on a discontinued model.
Having a small selection of critical parts is not a bad idea if we are looking to keep them on the road long term.

Overkill is a often underrated achievement.
