I put a 350/203 in my 85 jimmy it had a 700/208 . so i used the drive shaft that came with the 350/203 it was to long so I had it cut when I went to put the drive shaft in the Ujoints were too small for the rear end . what can I do? do they make Ujoints with one side 1 size and the other side a different size? this is all I need to get back out there and play. so any help would be great!

    what type rear are you running? If its a 10 or 12 bolt, you can swap out the yoke to a 1310 size and the d-shaft should fit. If it's a 14 bolt or a D60, you'll need to upgrade the yoke on the 203 (205 yokes will interchange) and get a new d-shaft made.

    Yes, get a hybrid/bastard u-joint and no problems.

    Don't need a new yolk. I just swapped a 14FF for my 12 bolt and am using the same driveshaft. It's a 1310/1350 conversion joint. Measure cap diameters, length of each end and retainer type (centering lug, outside circle ring or inside clip). My 1310/1350 conversion cost $25 and boy does it look funky! You should have no problem finding the ride conversion joint.

    Hybrid u-joints are easy to find and are reasonably priced.

    I paid $14.99 for my K20/K10 hybrid joint at Napa - and they had a dozen in stock.
