    i appreciate the yoke idea, but my uncle told me not to, because i could mess up the crush sleve, and i dont want to do that, id really much rather get the u-joint and call it a day, but if you could tell me more about doing the yoke swap, seeing that i have the CR19277 seal from napa and my old yoke out of my 89 10 bolt rear end, and my old U-joint. so if you could enlighten me, id lisin and consider it. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Use a prickpunch to mark the pinion and the nut. Count the threads and record them.

    Remove the nut and washer. Yank the yoke.

    Measure both yokes from where the washer rides to the back edge. If they're the same then just put it back together with the other yoke to the same spot with the marks lined up. My pinion had like zero effort to turn so I tightened it up a little bit further to get some preload. If you don't have some preload [I love Jeeps] will spin in there that's not supposed to (like outer races) and leave you with a mess.

    I believe the part number is 3-3130. The 10 bolt should be a S44 joint and the 12 blt a 1310. Go to autozone and ask to look at the ujoint catalog, there is a section in there for conversion joints.

    Confirmed. 3-3130 is the Neapco PN you need. I have the catalog in front of me right now. This will convert your 1310 to an S44 Joint.

    yea, well that one has inner C-clips, but it would fit if i had the inner c-clip driveshaft, that and the two caps were to small, but the 12 bolt side of it was perfect, but i went and bought the goddamn 30$ joint from napa today with my rednecekd together u-joint, yep i fixed it temporararly with parts from my old front u-joint on my rear joint, yea well it got me to where i needed to go /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
