    sorry if you have already seen this post in the garage forum but i realy need an answer im going wheeling in 1 week and i dont have 4wd. do you need the centering ball ? i broke my drive front recently and im flat ass broke, so what im trying to do is use the dc joint and flang from a saginaw and the slip yoke and shaft from a spicer i think i found a joint that will adapt these two together but i cant get the ball off the saginaw shaft and the one out of the spicer is to big so do i really need that ball in there with just a single dc joint wont the u joint center itself?

    The dc stands for Double Cardan. It is the specific type of cv joint our trucks use. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
