    I have read that 1350 fixed yokes do not have as much operating angle as 1310, 1330, 1410 have.
    Has anyone found this to be true? My old 1310 yoke and new 1350 yoke looked the same except for size, of course.
    The reason I ask is because I will eventually replace my 1310 front shaft with something bigger and I wanted to go 1350 to match my rear. But with a 6" susp lift, I need max operating angles.
    In case anyone wants to know where I read it, look at October 2000 Peterson's 4w&or p. 154.

    Actually, my new 1350 front CV has a better operating angle then my 1310 Saginaw CV. The Saginaw was even ground a little to provide a better angle. I can get 32 degrees (operating angle) out of my 1350 CV. The same goes for the back. My old 1350 (non CV) didn't have as much flex as the new 1350 CV. Go take a look at the article I did this month on off-road.com.
