    I got the rear shaft in the 89, had to get one lengthened, couldn't find a long enough one at a yard to use. Just for the he!! of it, I asked the guy what a 1410 d/s would go for. With a 205 1410 u-bolt style yoke, slip yoke and splined weld on yokes both front and rear sections, thicker tube (3 1/2" dia. I think, dunno thickness), and a 14ff 1410 yoke w/u-bolts, I think with the u-joints, for about $325. The 205/14ff yokes are almost $100 each, so I didn't think that was too bad a deal......

    I paid about 325 for a 52" shaft with 1410 series joints at both ends and .095 thick wall tubing from Fleet Pride. All new parts. If you are getting yokesas well, I say very good dealsince two yokes would normally be around 150-200 by themselves. ask the tubing thickness though, I think standard is .088.

    I didn't think it was too bad. Just the yokes are $100 each roughly. Now I need to decide if I really want to go with a doubler, don't want to do driveshafts again....

    thats a good deal. around here, protechk5 paid $350 or something for about a 60" 3.5" diameter shaft for 1350 joints. the shaft came with new joints as well.

    Did that include yokes for the t-case and axle?? If you think about it that way, say $100 for each, that leaves $125 for a new tube and weld on yokes. Cheaper than what you paid....and all 1410 stuff.....

    My new front driveline from my K5 was about $220. That was all new with a Saginaw style CV that was custom ground for extra operating angle.... 1350 joint at the diff with a saginaw style 4-bolt flange at the t-case.


    Oh and it was less than 1-day turn around... A big shoutout to the guys at Truck Part Specialists of Denver,,,

    A 100% new complete bolt on the yokes and shaft for $325 ain't bad. Hopefully I can sell some stuff to help cover the cost, then it's time for the front....

    I used to go to the Fleetpride here all the time to get D60 stuff. They told me that they are getting out of small truck stuff, only doing the big stuff. When I do check on pricing, it's OK, but not spectacular. Guy I'm going to now, used to work for the, but opened up an all new driveline shop. I might stop in and see what they can do for prices....
