    yeah, looks just like the one on my truck. It does have the cv joint at the transfercase right? as far as I know all the older style trucks had pretty much the same front driveshaft except for length and the np203s used a yoke with u-bolts instead of the flange.

    yeah theres not much room between mine and the headers either, or the headers and the shackles for that matter. Im looking into getting some chevelle headers, there was a thread on here a while back and some of the members suggested using them because they dont hang down as low and have more clearance. but on the other hand Ive never had any contact, at least not damaging contact between any of them.

    whoops. must of got em confused. I just knew that some of the older styles used a yoke but I wasnt real sure which ones, I just thought it was the 203s.
