    Was contemplating cutting my perches off and rewelding then in the proper angle position, but that seems kinda final when I am not too sure about what my future plans hold for this truck. I dont want to be cutting them off, again and again to fix my angles everytime.
    So, who is running a CV rear shaft?
    Did you just cannibalize the CV joint from a front shaft and weld it to a rear shaft? Or are they custom built from scratch?
    I figure that this will be the best thing and will let me do basically anything to the rear diff and it should pretty much compensate...

    Any inputs?

    Thanks
    Mike

    I am running a custom built CV rear drive shaft on my NP205. It uses a Ford Bronco NP205 1330 CV style output yoke on the 205 to accept the 1330 CV drive shaft end. Hope this helps.

    I may be slow, but I sure am fat!

    I got a complete rear CV shaft from Arizona Drivelines for $320. Now, anyone correct me if im mistaken, but i've heard that you could get a CV out of a Cadilac? or Olds Bravada and weld it into your Blazer shaft if you wanted to do it yourself.

    I guess if you didn't want it balanced or what not you could make one... but considering it is about $50 to have one balanced why mess with it IMO.

    I currently have a slip yoke style CV shaft soon to be a fixed yoke type I hope.

    I would say give Jesse a call at High angle driveline. You'll get like 10% off.

    I have a Caddy CV im mine, it uses a dodge flange yoke on the t-case, and the CV which uses that GM joint, its not a spicer size, but is comparable to a 1330 i think, it works well and i have had few problems with it, however, as i told someone else, if i had it to do over again i'd go with the spicer style 1350 CV. As was said give Jesse a call, he'll steer you down the right track.

    Hey Raised, is that the CV with a pivot in the middle of it? Do know what it's "officially" called? See my CV Joint post.

    ok, thanks for the input... but I am unfamiliar with the 1330/ 1350 numbers of u-joints...
    Are these part numbers? The ones I buy are from Napa (Canada) and they are number PUJ 369. Does that equate to anything you guys are talkin about?? The same ones I use are number V153 from Bumper to Bumper. They fit into my stock 79 NP205 and the 74 12 bolt yoke if that helps.
