    Should I go with a 1410 at the rear axle or not? I personally don't see the advantage when the CV will only be 1350. Wouldn't the cv be the weeklink in the shaft? Wouldn't using the 1410 pretty much insure that if you have driveline failure that it will be the cv joint, which would be a bigger PITA to change than a rear joint?

    When I get custom driveshafts this winter during my doubler install, I plan on going 1350 everywhere. Couple reasons for this. First is having the week link accessible. 2nd reason is trail spares. If everything is the same u-joint, then I can just have 1 or 2 and be okay. Otherwise I'll need to carry severeal different sizes. BTW, I've got 38's presently, but plan on going 42 Iroks within the next year or so.

    The 1410 Yokes are actually minutly stronger than a 1350CV or 1350 U Joint, the trunnion of the 1410 is the same O.D. as a 1350, the key difference is the cap to cap dimension which allows more angle without bind. I would recommend going with the 1410 Yoke.

    How would more angle capability help me in my situation? With a cv shaft, the piniion will be directly in line with the shaft, having virtually no angle at all.

    The only advantage I see is getting rid of the stock straps and going with u-bolt cap retainers.

    If you have mad flex sometimes the axle end joint can bind when flexed and applying power. Run what you got and if you have a bind issue then go to 1410 and just have the one yoke changed on the driveshaft.

    Think I'm sticking w/ BurbLover on this one, would be nice to only have one size joint for the entire drivetrain. Thanks

    1410s with u-bolts is definitely better than 1350s with straps. I have 1410 in the front and will be going 1410 in the rear soon. I'll only carry a 1410 spare. I figure if a CV explodes, its time to pull the shaft and run in either front or rear wheel drive to get back to safety.

    I say go with the 1410 because size does matter and chicks dig big ends on shafts :haha:

    I went 1410 on the rear shaft with the 1350 CV up top. I am going 1410 up front on the yoke as well. As has been said, more angle and no straps. I made this decision with help from Jesse at HAD. He knows a little bit about driveshafts.

    If you grenade a CV, something's already hit the fan. Besides, if you have a 1350/1410 combo, there's only one extra joint you have to carry.
