    Anyone know if there is a stronger cv joint i might find in a junkyard that will bolt to the front of my np205 and just weld to my existing front driveshaft? Im looking for a cheaper route than HID's 1350 cv. I have no money and no working front driveshaft..THIS SUCKS!! LOL

    Are you breaking them on a regular basis? What are your angles at?

    i read something about using a dodge front CV shaft for a decent junk yard shaft. Might research something about that. Can't remember off the top of my head.

    Cheap ain't strong and strong ain't cheap.

    Which is more important to you?

    No that's the first one I broke. I have about 7.5in. of suspension lift in the front. The reason Im asking is because I called the junk yards around here and nobody had a cv joint or shaft for my truck so before I go wandering the yards I just wanted to know if anyone has used something off a freakin dump truck or something lol. An upgrade is not a necessity but it'd be nice b/c I dont like messing with the cv, id rather have the joint at the axle break.

    I'll look at dodge shafts thanks.
