I know its a little 'light' for the center of gravity forum, but the people in here are the most likely to know. In a CV joint as part of a driveshaft, I found a connector (ball & socket) between the two parts of the driveshaft. Its inside of the CV assembly, and seems to equalize the angle of the two ujoints. Is this ball & socket nessecary for the proper operation of the CV joint. I'm looking into building a driveshaft with a CV, so I need to know if I need to integrate the yokes with this ball & socket cast into them, or if I can just use standard yokes on each end of the CV, and the "coupler", and have it all work right.
