    You will need u joints. Put a new one at the t case and a conversion joint at the axle. The conversion joints are Napa Part # 447 and #342. I am not positive on the 342 number but you will need one or the other at the axle.

    Re: Question on 1 Ton drivelines / yokes??

    Im off to poke around in the junkyard this weekend for a one ton drive line. Im wondering what I can pull a yoke off of to acomplish this very thing. Its WAY cheaper to shorten a junk yard tube than it is to fab up new ones.

    Are the splined outputs the same on all 205"s? Is this one of those deals where I better take it apart and count the splines?

    A board member here offerd to sell me an adapter u joint.. And that may be a fine temperary fix... But I'm with you.. whats the point in leaving a weak link.

    Re: Question on 1 Ton drivelines / yokes??

    you are fine, id suggest swapping the rear when time permits to a 1 ton, but for now your cool. the front is best to stay the same as the axle weight i think /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif til you get a D60.

    Re: Question on 1 Ton drivelines / yokes??

    Put the 1350 yoke on your transfer case.
    This is about $50 from gmpartdirect.com part number 6259081
    I got this info from Mike_Reeh.

    Now you can get your driveshaft as a 1 ton with 1350s on both ends and a thick walled 3 inch tube. Of course, this is going to co$t a bit more than just upgrading your current driveshaft with a 1350 on one end.

    Sorry, I just told the driveline guy, I want to put a 1350 U-joint in the yoke. He said, OK. So I don't know how else to describe the larger 1 ton type yoke.

    Re: Question on 1 Ton drivelines / yokes??

    Looks like a low-rider shaft or something. It's pretty narrow. I just went through the same thing. I must have called a dozen different driveline shops. Some told me one thing and some told me the exact opposite. Finally I had Arizona Drivelines make me up a rear high angle cv shaft all 1350 but it was pricey ($370). For the front they are just reworking my old 1/2 ton one, lengthening it and adding a high angle cv ($160). I wanted to convert the front to 1350 also, but it was more expensive because of the front yoke (around $400 total) so I decided to wait on it for now. Plus one shop told me something that seems to make sense. They said that the half ton front shaft has all the strength I'll need unless upgrading to a 1 ton front. Because of the gear reduction, the weak link in a front or rear end is usually beyond the gears. They said I'd break an axle joint or hub before the original 1/2 ton drive shaft ever breaks, even with stonger replacment axle shafts. Also, some of the heavy duty front shafts have fitment problems if you are running headers. Anyway, hope it helps.
