    Do you just keep selling me everything?

    Price is fine

    If it has the right joints but the wrong length I'll still buy it, well maybe, I'll see how much a retube is

    EVERYONE ELSE: I'M STILL LOOKING COULD USE A SPARE! EVEN IF THIS ONE WORKS OUT

    Hrmmmmmm, can you measure the caps on the shaft, and make sure all the caps are similar?

    Hey thanks a lot for taking the time but if the U joints aren't the same I can't use them

    If he doesn't want it, I'll take it if the price is right. I'm the proud owner of a shortbed with a 205 and 14 bolt myself so a spare shaft could work out great. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'd sell ya my K30's rear shaft but it was a two piece shaft so it'd do you no good.

    The above shaft with a 1310 on the slip and 1350 at the axle end can easily be made all 1350 with the slip yoke from a 3/4 ton or 1 ton without too much effort at all.

    the 203 k20 trucks were commonly like that with two sizes of U joints, you usually wont find one with same u joints on both ends, i have had quite a few 73-80 k20 203 trucks and they have all been this way including this 79 out here right now, thats just how they are, and also most all of them run 56" light rear springs setup but with HD 3 leaf front packs and sway bar heavy front setup, very wierd odd combo but it is what GM did in the 70s on this particular model,

    good luck
