    I have an 86 GMC Jimmy. I am needing both front and rear shafts (which should be no problem if another member would reply to my PM'S /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif)

    It has a 350/400/208/12/44. Will any K5 drive shaft work or are they different depending on year trans/xfer case/ axles?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as these are the only parts I am lacking (aside from a 208 skid plate and the torque rod). If you have these parts...................let me know a price. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I have both out of a 3/4 ton CUCV front is same as 1/2 ton variety but rear is not. Let me know if you want them free just postage. 96271(korea) that is why free postage will be pricey.

    If the truck is stock any 400/208 combo driveshaft is going to work (1 ton's and CUCV's are the more common source) but they may be a little short due to the D60 that was normally in the front compared to the 44 you have. For the rear shaft you will probably have to have one made or modified because the 400/208 combo did not come in the blazers.

    On second thought... There are some 6.2 diesel 3/4 ton pickups/burbs that came with a 400/208 that might be a better source for a front driveshaft.
