    '73 &amp; up yes, 5-297x. Before that they used the 260-same as a D30.

    I saw on another post by Drivelineman that there was another new ,stronger u joint available from spicer I think.I think they were less than $30 each.

    Some people shouldnt drive anything bigger than their head.<a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/beaterwhang>community.webshots.com/user/beaterwhang</a>

    cool ujoint, but seems like teh ujoint would be kinda like a fuse. fairly easy to change not to exspensive.
    the story tells how strong th joint is, but sounds like they could be real exspensive. axles knucles all that. i think i will stick with weak joints, and unbroken axles.
    where do you find all this cool stuff
    i am either working on somthing or on tis site. little time for other sites
    i have 3 kids and a wife, that i cant understand why they feel teh need to have my valuable K5 time LOLOL
    chris

    It needs a bigger motor.
    what's in it now?
    doen't matter it NEEDS A BIGGER MOTOR

    i added a d44 vs. 10 bolt page to my site a few months ago.

    its at :
    http://79blazer.tripod.com/chwk4x4/id11.html

    tells about the difference between the two and etc...

    I currently have a 78 with a d44 and a 79 with a 10 bolt.



    Theres no replacement for displacement!
    I want a big block!

    '89; the only problem with that line of thinking is the when the u-joint goes it will often take out the axle shaft and some times the ball-joints.
