    pulling my trans(400)on my suburban and want to at least put stronger ujoints in frount and rear drive shafts. front axle is a 10 bolt and rear is a 14 bolt 4.10 gears. 36 inch tires and moderate wheeling. Havent had problems but I like to inprove everything on it that I pull off.

    Another qustion My front drive shaft has a lot of play in the slip yoke portion of it, the play is radial or side to side is that normal or is there a fix or do I need a new one?

    /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif thanks guys and gals /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    You need a new slip yoke in your front driveshaft.

    What kind of transfer case does your rig have?

    Maybe well you've got the t-case out, you can take out the front axle and replace it with a 60 and put in a 1 ton dshaft.

    Which you'd be disappointed to find that the 1 ton trucks use the same size u joints in their front driveshaft. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
