    Have you seen the post about the offset bushings for running a Dodge 60? So a search for it if you haven't. Very slick way to move your springs.

    2 things.

    1: why do you need a chevy yoke? just get a conversion u-joint.

    2: are those units kingpin?

    the dodge yoke is setup to run the ujoint with the internal clips, The ones that clip on the ujoint cap, The chevy yoke has the clips that go on the end of the caps, in the yoke on the driveshaft, and two little Tabs on the Pinion yoke..

    If you are going to buy a chevy yoke, Get the 1350 yoke, not the 1310 yoke (stock) Then you can run the 1350 u joint, but you will have to have the front driveshaft fitted with the 1350 yoke aswell...

    Yes those units are kingpin.

    Instead of getting the Chevy steering arm, you can use the dodge steering arm and you wont have to get the 4 inch block to compensate for the lift.

    maybe he should see what yoke he has before we start buying new ones.
    mine came with a 1330 external snap ring yoke
    I imagine Dodge changed this over the years same as the other manufacturers

    Dodge D60

    I'm glad I read this post, I thought all I needed was the offset bushings (I bought a Dodge D60 too). But I am planning on building the axle up to my standards anyway. I just wish I didn't have to do things that I didn't want to do.

    Good luck with yours man. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    external go into the ends of the yoke
    internal snap to the cap closer to the centre of the cross
    you can change to driveshaft side of the equation to match your axle
    IIRC my chev 44 was 1310ish and my Dodge60 was 1330 so we used the dodge larger sized joint and had the shaft done to match.
    dunno if that was wise as the 1310 cv at th TC is what has broken on me and it is a bit $$
