    How can you tell the differences between a 1330,1350,1410 and so on universal joint. Thanks Ed

    The size.
    1310s are what is in your axleshafts for your frotn axle. They are also what is in your front driveshaft.

    1350s are what size attaches to a 1 ton rear axle.

    1410s are huge and you probably won't see one unless it's a really built truck. They never came stock.

    And you didn't ask, but 1480 are huge also and are what are in the axleshafts of a Dana 60 front axle.

    I'm sure someone will list the actual dimensions.

    We knew that, we want dimensions.

    By the way, I believe that the axleshaft Ujoints in the front are not 1310. They are 5-297x or 5-760x.
    The front and rear driveshaft U joints are 1310 yes.
    Now I was wondering if someone knows what size is the Van rear driveshaft Ujoint size. It's quite bigger than my 12b rear yoke, and I was wondering if it's 1330 or 1350, does someone know?

    Do the 1310's on the front driveline go out very often under moderate wheeling? If they only get half the motor torque they seem like they should be ok. Also, I didn't do a search yet, but is the front CV joint a 1310 combination as well?

    The front CV joint is a 1310 yes.
    The axle U joint is taking half the torque, that is true and I never had problems in mine which is locked and with 35" tires until I unlocked one hub to steer easier then we got to a hairy section and all the stress came on one shaft, but intrestingly the caps were cracking and poping out but the splines at the end inside the diff sheared off instead of the U joint breaking. They were the original spicer U joint.
