    does anybody know what size (ie. thread count, pitch, etc. . .) the bolt is for the front flange of the 208 to connect the front drive shaft? i have had a hell of a time trying to find one that'll fit and all i know is that it's metric. i am pretty sick of being stuck in 2wd mode. somebody please help!

    Are you talking about the nut that holds the ujoint? If so I can let you know this weekend if you drop me a PM. Ill be swaping out my front seal then and I can check.

    nah, the ones that hold the cv side of the drive shaft to the transfer case.

    called high angle driveline and 7/16 seems to be the consensus. i was pretty sure i had tried that and it wasn't workin' but i will have to try again.
    2wd only is frustrating.

    thanks for the help
