    Was it a total bolt on swap. I'm set to purchase an axle this week and I'm curious if it is going to be a direct bolt on.

    348 is for older trucks with external locking clips (spicer 1310) which is part number 3-3140

    86 1/2 ton will use internal clips (saginaw s44) and thus uses 2-1153 or 447 in precision, take your pick.

    No, it is not available any other way. Greasable through cross is it, and that is the only number available. 3-3140.

    2-1153 is for internal clips to spicer 1350. The spicer 1350 is wider, you're correct.

    No problem, any u joint questions and I'll attempt to answer, I've got a catalog. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I run 15" wheels on my 84 with no problems. Front is a Dana 60 with 4 hours of grinding on each side to clear the wheels and tires. Rear is a 14 ff with discs and no grinding, clears just fine.

    Yes 2-1153 is wider one way than the other but only slightly.

    also the front if you are doing that required swapping the calipers /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I go to napa's website and type in 2-1153 and 447 and nothing comes up except for some snap ring pliers, and some springs. Will I have to go to the store to find one?

    Not sure why. They should have no problems getting the joints, they're fairly common.

    I could have a half dozen by tomorrow if I needed.
