    Does anybody have any pictures of a rear CV slip yoke shaft? I'm mostly interested in the slip yoke part.

    Thanks

    i was thinking about making a cv. would it be possible to atach the cv part from the front driveshaft on my np208 to my rear driveshaft. it would fit in between the slipyoke and the shaft, adding the extra length the four inch lift i have needs. im thinking all i would need are some new U joints. would this wourk or is stuff going to explode?

    that's not how slip yoke CV's work. you need a slip yoke out of a caddy. it's an enclosed rectangle that holds the ball in the middle. hard to explain.

    What year/model Caddilac does it require? That's the exact piece I've been trying to find. Does it use a 1310 universal joint?

    I don't need the "ultimate" in strength or angle, I just need something to get rid of vibration problems caused by my pinion being pointed up.

    Thanks for the info

    The NP208 front shaft is flange (Saginaw) type whereas the rear is open yoke (Spicer) type.

    Not to mention the front shaft uses a significantly smaller universal joint than the rear 1310 joint.

    I'm working on making a list of parts to make your own custom slip yoke CV shaft. I've got a list of parts to make it work right now but it's really expensive because of having to assemble a bunch of parts to make the slip yoke.

    I'm not sure. I'll sell you my old shaft. It needs a new H-yoke though and a new cup on the slip yoke side. i'll get a picture. it's a 1350 rear joint and yoke.

    Jesse does not use the cadilac CV. It is a poor idea as it only has splines about halfway down the yoke.

    Jess's yokes have splines all the way to the end.

    Hey,

    I am using the Cadillac CV shaft on mine as well. It is missing some of the splines on the slip yoke, but I have 6 inchs of lift, have flexed it out pretty good and have yet to hear anything funny going on. I'm about to swap in some flexy 56's so I will see if it brings up any problems.
    The seal on the back of a 208/241 happens to be the exact same part number as that on the old 79 caddy th-400 tail seal...that crazy GM is at it again.
    Here is a pic

    Top is the caddy shaft.
    Then a a lengthened shaft for my 6 inch lift
    Bottom is dead stock shaft.

    I use the middle one as a spare. I get some slight t-case noises on deaccelleration about 40 mph with it in. I used to run it before my shackle flip.

    Do they sell yokes to fit the Caddy shafts, or just complete shafts w/ slip yoke CV joint?
