    Backyardbuilt did a write-up on this a while back. He used either a mid-70s or mid-80s Chevy Van shaft. Hopefully he'll see this post. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yep just found it. let me get this straight

    old tilt(got it) uses the 89 truck colunm joint and the van box joint

    non tile uses both van joints.

    am i right /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
