    I'm getting ready to install my 14 bolt into my Blazer. It came from a suburban. Is there a driveshaft from some other vehicle with a CV-joint that I can just hunt in the junkyards and have it properly sized?

    Which routes have you guys gone to do this? Ordering a new fancy driveshaft is not an option for me because I'm outside USA /forums/images/icons/frown.gif But there are shops over here that can do the shortening/lenghtening job cheap. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    When I swapped in my 14 bolt I just had to get the NAPA u joint(#348 or 447).As long as you are not swapping the t- case, then you should be good to just get the special u joint.Mike
