    Ok so I go and have a rear cv made for my blazer, then I realize I need a cv yoke comming off my 203 so I can bolt it up. That was good and all but now I cant geet a socket that fits inside the yoke so I can tighten the nut.

    The socket that I used before fit with the old yoke but with the newer yoke it won't work.

    Is there a special socket? Or a nut that I need to change over to?

    I am stump on this, my last resort will be to grind the crap out of a socket and make it work, just for kicks does any one know the part number for the seal I need to, I heve one that will "WORK" but it isn't a perfect fit.

    the t-case is a 203 and it is a 32 spline cv yoke.

    Thanks to anyone who can help....jessi? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    If you're currently using an impact socket try a chrome socket. Typically chrome sockets have thinner walls so the overall diameter is smaller than it's impact counterpart.

    go buy a craftsman 1 5/16" socket. they only come in 3/4 drive. get an adapter while you are at it.

    take it to a machine shop and have it lathed down ~1/4"

    baudaboom! your cooking with fire.

    p.s. the reason to use a craftsman, is that you need to turn down all the materal that is under the socket size. so you will still be able to read it.
