    don't think it could be a whole lot more simple... remove the old, replace with the new with the same bolts and crap and you're good to go!

    if its a mid 80's 10 bolt with the internal snap rings on the u-joint, you need a conversion joint for the drive line that converts it to 1310 style u-joint so it will bolt up to the dana 44.

    lol, thanks for the help guys. i'm sure i sound like an idiot now, but my front shaft wasn't installed with the 10 bolt and there isn't a u-joint in it right now, so i couldn't check to see if they were the same.
