Do I need a special U-joint for my new 3/4 ton 10 bolt front axle?

    I got a 8 lug 10 bolt to match my 8 lug 14 bolt rear. Do I need the hybrid U-Joint up front? Thanks.

    I wouldn't think so. Its still the small front end, the only real difference if I remember correctly is the hubs have 8 lugs instead of 6.
    Anyboy else?

    Will work for beer, parts and tools.

    Should be the same on both 1/2 and 3/4 44's and 10 bolts.

    You shouldnt have to change them. Almost ALL front shafts on ALL the stock trucks have the same size yokes. These yoke sizes are the 1310 series.

    I saw an ad for a 10-bolt 1350 series yoke in a magazine a while back. Lost it.
    Does anyone know the part number for this critter? I'd like to use 1350 on
    front to have same joints as in rear.

    Silly question but since its still a 10 bolt, why would the size of the yolk/u-joint change?

    Contact Jesse at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://highangledriveline.com>http://highangledriveline.com</A> He can set you up with a 1350 front C/V 32 deg. shaft and the yoke you need for the pinion.

    See Ya,
