    For those of you who have upgraded their Dana 60 front axle pinion yokes, which U-joint size did you go from stock, up to? Did you choose a 1350 or 1410 yoke, and why?

    I plan on upgrading mine (big block power and air under the tires isn't a good combo for the stock yoke!):doah: Thanks!

    I have a flange set up on my K10. It is stronger and can run a greater angle. Call Jess at High Angle Driveline and he will fix you up. It is not inexpensive but worth the money imo.

    I went with the 1410 because it can handle alittle better angle than the 1350 and I was ordering a new shaft from HAD anyway.

    Just got my front driveshaft from HAD and upgraded to 1410. Better angles so I don't have to shim my D60. 6" of front lift. I also went with the 42 degree CV and it is a monster.

    Yep went 1410 for the strength over stock and the angle capabilities.

    I have killed 2 stock yokes and 1 1310 u-joint.

    ive got 1350, went with it cuz they are cheaper than 1410, and the local parts store has them instock unlike the 1410's which are special order i believe. i think a 1350 will hold up just fine in the front. im planning on staying with 1350 upfront, and then going 1410 in the rear eventually, when it comes time for the new driveshaft

    Yep a 1410 and 1350 are same strength, but the 1410 can handle more angle.

    Wow, a lot of people went 1410, looks like mostly for angularity reasons. I plan on probably using a HAD driveshaft in the front, unless I can get one made locally, so I think I'll give Jesse a call, and order a yoke from him! Thanks for the great replies!

    dont mean to hijack but are any guys on here running a 1410 cv for the front driveshaft? I was told by tom when I talked to him that with a 400/205 that there is not enough room to run anything bigger than a 1310 cv up front. This is due to the pan on the 400 being so wide and it wont clear. Is this true? Do I have to have an excuse to run a doubler now?

    I picked up my 1410 yoke at the junkyard :D

    For what sizes does the journal size change? I've used lots of Neapco joints in the past - different sizes mind you - but the journals were all the same and the caps could be swapped around. :confused: Does the journal size get bigger with increased cap-size on Spicer joints?
