    I have read that the weak point on the yoke is the bolt on straps the hold the u-joint. Have many people experienced breakage with this type of setup? Also, could you just drill out the threaded holes on the existing yoke and put the u bolt straps to improve the strength?

    Not sure on the drilling. I do know I have replaced mine once when I had the back end tied up in the rocks. I just stole them off another vehicle in the junk pile.

    I am working on a 205 swap which will include a new 1410 yoke at the moment. The 1410 is the same price as a u bolt style 1350

    Yes but you need to have the backside of the yoke machined flat where the nuts will be.

    High-Angle DL makes a 1410 yoke that is bolt style....naturally it's pricy though
