    This can\'t be right...

    I have just been told by a shop that a 1350 series cv ( just the cv) does not exist. That a 1 ton Chevy shaft has the conversion joint to mate it to the 1350 t-case output and the normal 1350 joint on the other end of the shaft. The middle joint would be a 1330 or 1310. This sounds like BS, Anybody??

    I'm pretty sure the shop is right... if 1350 CV's came stock, everyone would be running it. Maybe Jesse can verify.

    It is total BS. I have a 1350 front CV driveshaft from Arizona Driveline. Factory 1 ton chevy's came with a 1330 cv and 1310 at the axle. What the shop probably meant was that 1350 CVs are not junkyard parts. I doubt that any truck ever came from the factory with a bastard joint. I bought a 1350 yoke for my front D60 from Jegs and the straps from Randy's Ring and Pinion. I highly reccomend Oscar at Arizona Driveline. He was much nicer to talk to than Jessy James of Hi Angle Driveline. They also offer much better products. Hi Angle's 1350 CV is not greasable and requires machining of the Tcase output flange. The one I have is fully greasable and fit my factory four bolt flange.

    We all KNOW 1350 outputs came from the factory on 1 ton 203s. If 1330 cv's are the factory standard on 1 tons, how do they make the transition from cv to output without using a bastard joint?

    I have never seen a 203 out of a 1ton truck. If they do come with 1350 outputs, then they could just have a different yoke on the end of the driveshaft. I do know that D60 front axles come with 1310 yokes. Why would the factory put 1350 Ujoints only to "fuse" the driveshaft with a 1310? Also, what kind of 1350 yoke is on these 203's? The only ones I have seen had the four bolt square flange or a more normal (saginaw style?) yoke with 1310 CV.
