    i went from 10b's front and rear, to 60/14b 1350's. the conversion u-joint i have for the rear works fine and fits perfectly. i tried to do my front, and the conversion ujoint cap is too big. and im using the correct one (s44-1350) what gives? are front/rear joints different?

    10 bolt and 44 and 60 front all use the same joint on the input of the axle. only need to change rear joint at axle end.

    Unless you had a new driveshaft made then I dont know why you are using a conversion joint. All Chevy front ends are 1310...

    You can get a 1350 yoke for your front driveline, but thats more work.

    Should be the same U-joint for the front as the rear if you have a 1350 yoke on your D60. The front U-joint is a 1330 factory IIRC.

    You'll need a 3-3140 to convert from your 1310 driveshaft to your 1350 D60 yoke.
