    my front drive shaft is worn were the two slide together,the splines are way worn and have alot of movement,or "play" can this be rebuilt? I also have a front driveshaft off the same truck but a 3/4 ton and its the cv front shaft type,it uses a different bolt type to attach to the yoke on the output yoke on the t-case,could I just use thru bolts (grade 5) to bolt it on the yoke? or do I have to buy another yoke for the output yoke on the t-case? help im lost??? /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    When I did my suspension lift, I had to have new drive shafts made. I think your best (safest) thing to do is that.

    well if i was you, id use the driveshaft you already got, as long as its not wern down, and id probly use grade 8 bolts, grade 5 would probly work, i think those are the ones holding my front drive shaft on the yoke of the t-case. good luck and happy trails.
