    Quick question. I am looking to sell a spare driveshaft. It came from a 78 K20 with a 203 to D44. Which if any other T-cases will this bolt too? Also will it bolt to a 10b without a conversion joint? Thanks.

    It will bolt to a 10 bolt without any problems, it will even bolt to a D60 without a conversion joint since GM used the same size u-joing in all front driveshafts 1/2-1 ton (but D60's put the Ujoint closer to the t-case than a D44/10 bolt so length is an issue). But the determining factor in that driveshaft is the combined length of the tranny and t-case so just post what tranny/tcase it came off of and the buyer will probably be limited to that same combo unless they have a 6" or higher lift and need a longer driveshaft.. So also list the length of the shaft while it is extended and retracted (from center of u-joint to center of u-joint/flange). Then finally does it have a flange or U-joint on the tcase end?
