    Yes, the input styles do swap over with ease, I just finished my fixed yoke output mod and will be installing it this week. Other than that I think they are all the same. (Just what I know) Iceman

    With a slip yoke, the driveshaft could spit out the back of the case.

    Yeah, and when that happens, the fluid will leak out the hole.

    Also, the slip yoke shortens the length of the driveshaft.

    Because the joint sticks out so far behind the bearing surface, there is a lot of stress placed on the output shaft.

    Well my boggle comes into trying to get a CV made for my 208. The one place I called "wasn't thrilled" about making it. I guess it is kinda a weak setup, but ain't got the cash/wheel hardcore enough yet to bust it IMO.
