Well my shaft finally gave up, went wheeling tonight and could not figure out all the noise from the front end and no front drive. A buddy shined his flashlight on the shaft and it was just spinning at the splines /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif. I guess all the slop at the splines finally got the better of it, I imagine that turning 38.5's did not help /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

So I need a complete front shaft with the 4-bolt flange for a Np203, I need on that is tight at the splines and has a CV in good shape, I can replace joints. The cheaper the better.

Thanks,

I happen to have a couple different shafts. some straight and some cv. just let me know a size to look for and very possibly might have it.

in fact just saturday I pulled off another one from a 203 to do a swap. it was a long bed 1979 chevy half ton so it should be close to what you need. all I ask is to not incur shipping fees and the shaft is yours AKA free. figure it's better than trying to get one at pick n pull. should be something like $40 via greyhound maybe less. they usually ship the cheapest for odd sizes and anything under 100lbs.
