    Are you referring to the axle shaft or the drive shaft? No drive shaft joint for the front yoke end has internal rings, at least from what I have seen.

    Nope, they all use a Spicer 1310 from the factory, part number 1-0153 in Neapco. (external rings)

    Well who knows what front driveshaft is in it. IT IS a 81 k10 pickup i have put a dodge dana 60 and a 14bltff. the front driveshaft does not have rings for the external snaprings i thought that they were just missing put then i found the inner snaprings. ok so all the "right" joints per napa the zone, advanced and post yer part # are all wrong the cross is to big to fit in the end of the shaft. And the caps are to big to fit in the holes. hmmm i found a joint laying around for my rear shaft and the cross and the caps are a perfect fit BUT external rings hmm hard tellin were the shaft came from BUT that what is in the truck and yes it is on an auto trick with a cv at the t-case

    REAR driveshafts, yes.

    ALL front pinion joints on our trucks are spicer 1310s, not saginaw.

    Would this make a difference? The Dodge's used internal snap rings...

    There is no such thing as a 1310 with inside clips unless it is a wheel joint.

    Spicer style u joints use external locking clips.

    I'd double check your driveshaft.

    Dodge Dana 60 will use a 1310 or 1330, no matter what, your pinion joint should use external locking clips.
