    Its a 81 3/4 ton 10 bolt, I know everything is interchangable from the knuckles out but does that include the knuckles?
    So will the 5-760x work in my diff?
    Thanks

    They wouldn't do to much good for your differential, but they would work OK in your front axle shafts.

    Yes, they are. 297, 5-297x, and 5-760x are all the same size joint. 5-760x is the newest part number, and the strongest.

    They will work fine I had a set in my D44 with moser shafts and broke 2 stub shafts and the joints survived the 297's would have failed and took out the inner shafts also. So I recomend them for anyone who needs new joints use the 760's.

    thanks I will get my machine shop guy to order them in, he gets me great deals so hopefully it'll be fairly cheap.
    Thanks for the help

    I'm just getting my local machine/driveshaft shop to order them in if he can, he sells all the heavy duty u-joints so I imagine that he would get them.
