Need part number if you have it handy. Local parts store doesn't follow RTC4587.

Is this for the '97 or the '83 ?

The '97 is Neapco 1-0005 (US Made).
Another number is 1300.
All 4 are the same joint on the '97

1300 is a series of u-joints, not a part number.

Here are the likely candidates
'97 would be the 1300 series, '83 is probably 1310 but I'm including the dimensions so you can make sure.

1300 series
2.938" cap to cap and 1.063" cap dia
Neapco 1-0005
Precision 344

or

1310 series
3.219' cap to cap and 1.063" cap dia.
Spicer 5-153x
Precision 369
Neapco 1-0153
Neapco 1-0154
Precision 380
(the latter 2 have the zerk in the end cap)
All of the above are made in the US the last time I checked, a couple years ago now I think.

Precision 369 crosses to a Moog 369 crosses to a 1987 mustang. You can get them at the advance or autozone or NAPA (Fairfax auto parts)

ive always used precision 344's (yellow box blue letters) they are about $35 at my local napa and they have a "lifetime" warranty ive probably bought four over the years, they seem to be well made. i have a bent driveshaft that i went round and round with for a year or so. long of the short the precisions have been in three drive shafts and are as smooth as they can be and always reliable. if you are "hardcore" the 1310's provide a fuse for 35's and cromo cv's/axles most of the time

Lifetime warranty? Really? Any idea how to cash in on this if they go south? I *think* I'm starting to get a slight bit of play in my 344's, but really haven't been able to look at it in-depth. Would be nice to know what the warranty consists of in the event they turn out to be compromised.

Wow, Lifetime Warranty, probably worth a try. My rear pinion angle has always been a pain in the ass.

I've read that some guys have had problems with Neapco's from Advanced Auto. In multiple posts guys said three of the four caps were too large to fit. The only cap that fit correctly was the one with the zero fitting. Odd. In at least one case when the guy exchanged it the second set was ok.

I've seen that too. It's odd though, as I've used a lot of the Neapco (PDQ 1-0005 -1-0154) over the years and not had a fitment issue with any of them.

On a side note, I'm not sure Neapco has the PDQ line anymore. Advance still lists them, but they've shown out of stock for a long time. The only name brand ones I find there now are Federal Moguls's Precision/Moog u-joints.

Congrats!! You're officially the resident UJ expert now. Any tricks or tips for replacing this damn things the right way the first time? I watched a YouTube that make it look fairly easy but I know guys that have had frustrating experiences and had to bring out the heavy artillery.

Here's a link to a post that has some pointers that are usually left out of instructions. It also has links to two different sets of rebuild instructions.

Small sledge and a small vice did the trick. I ran into D.Short at the parts store while I was picking up the UJ. He'd literally just finished doing his too so we knocked out mine crazy quick.

FYI, the guy at Advance Auto took down my cell# for warranty info. Lifetime on defects, whatever that is. They happen to be running a 4th of July discount so I think I paid $15 for my Mustang UJ.

Yes, those Precision 344s are what I've been using....but my rear also failed at about 10k miles and I replaced it again this summer (unfortunately with another 344 since that is what was in my parts stash). Next time I'd like to go GKN and see if I have any better luck per Red90's suggestion.
