    I did a 3/4 swap in my 78 burban. It had a 12bolt and i put in an 85 14blt SF Will the 348 joint still work or do i need the other one? Thanks!

    Yes, the 348 is a 1350-1310 joint, IIRC you can get a spicer 5-460x and it does the same thing, except its a better joint.

    i wont use napa joints any more. there quality has gone down . thay are fat neddles and few of them at that. i was always told to have skinny neddles and lots of them. spreads the load out better on the cross.
