U-joint replacement

I replaced prop shaft U-joints yesterday with a new set from
Gordon's. The new set fit perfectly and even have a grease zerk.
I purchased another set from NAPA, #812 that have the correct
diameter cups but are about 3/23" short per end. I will keep the
NAPA set in our spare parts kit and think they may be used it spacers
are inserted before the C-clips are snapped in. It may be possible
to use the C-clip from U-joints being replaced as spacers; they
appear to be about the right thickness.
Gordon's U-joints may have cost a little more than the $18 set from
NAPA; but they fit like a glove, they were supposed to, with no
machine work.
