    Driveshaft ujoints are supposed to have the same amount of angle to not vibrate correct? (non CV)

    What is the max continuous angle for a 1350 ujoint?

    Thanks

    Yes, the angles should be within 2° of each other. I would not go more than 15° on a DD if it was possible.

    You got vibes again??

    Driveshaft at more angle will just wear out faster. As long as it doesn't bind, it will not break if it's 1 ton rated.
