    If you can find an October Petersons, they installed one in a Tahoe or Suburban. The U-Joint you need is a Precision 447. The center section is less than an inch longer so your driveshaft is fine. They say you can use the same brake cables since it is only ~an inch wider than the stock 10 bolt.

    I will be installing one next weekend that I bought from a local yard for $100.
