    I just took my D60 front shaft in to have it lengthened 2"
    and they told me in was a 1310 series joint?? WTF? I thought they used 1330 or 1350 joints stock? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    IMHO, i'd rather replace a driveline u-joint than an axle u-joint. hench i have kept mine at 1310 with no problems.

    Tony's truggy also runs a 1310 front u-joint, and his 402BBC and 44" TSL's have not busted one yet either.

    <font color="green"> I'm with Zakk on this one; the driveshaft joint is the easiest thing to replace, so make it your fuse. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif </font>

    and the 1310 Spicer u-joints are only ~$17 for a sapre!

    one area you should upgrade is the straps on the yoke of the D60. the u-bolts are best, the straps have a tensdency to streach.

    My truggy on 42s has been running a 1310 since I built it, and I haven't broken it yet, but it doesn't get used that much. New setup is 1410s all the way around with u-bolts... They just came in today. Main reason for the change was high angle support, and 1 spare joint for all locations, plus one spare shaft for front and rear...

    Zakk, where do you get your spicer joints from? I need a couple 1350's for my rear shaft. Thanks...

    Not that it matters, but ALL front axles from GM are all equipped with 1310 series yokes and joints. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
