    The rear driveshaft was stolen out of my 89 blazer with yoke and bolt caps. Ive had trouble finding a replacement. Will the driveshaft out of an 85 work? The 85 uses a 28 spline rear and a different transfer case. The yoke fits in my transfer case, but Im not sure if it will work. Thanks for the input. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif that really sucks, so now we have little gear head munchskins running around during the night stealing driveshafts and stuf, i hear the front drive shaft gets stolen the most, because not everyone will realize its gone, untill you look under it or goto use 4wd /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif.

    Do you mean it physically fits but has a different spline count? If it has the same splines and assuming the rear yoke is the same, you will just have to check the length. A driveline shop told me the center of the ujoint (the one closest to the tcase) to the end of the tail housing should be 3 inches. So install it and measure to check.
