TECH TIPS:

HOW TO MEASURE DRIVESHAFT LENGTH:
As all our driveshaft come with new slip yokes I suggest you first order the driveshaft. We will ship you a new slip yoke to install in the transmission. Take your measurement, return the new yoke with the measurements in writing, and we will make the shaft and then return it to you fully assembled and balanced.

When making your measurements the car must be at it’s normal ride height. Measure on the floor. DO NOT measure with the wheels hanging down from a hoist or jack stands. The proper measurement must be taken as if the car is fully loaded and running down the road to insure proper driveshaft length.

Install the new yoke into the back of the transmission, push it all the way in, then pull it back 1.0”. With the help of a friend measure the center to center of the front u-joint and the rear u-joint on the differential. It is sometimes difficult to guess where the centerline of a u-joint is. By moving to the rear of the slip yoke u-joint and measuring to the rear of the differential u-joint it is the same as measuring center to center.

You must fax or write us with the proper centerline to centerline dimension and your signature. NOTE: (NO-RETURNS)


U-JOINT TORQUE SPECS:
By far the most common u-joint failures start as the results of the owners attempt at making sure the driveshaft does not come out of the vehicle. It is a common misconception that a tight u-bolt and u-joint are a happy u-bolt and u-joint. This is not always true. By over tightening the u-bolt the cap becomes an oval shape and the needles are driven hard into the u-joint body and the inside of the u-joint cap.  The results are burnt needles and grease and then eventual u-joint failure. 

Torque specifications for our u-bolt kits are: .3125” or 5/16” 1310, 3R, and 1330 u-bolts = 14 to 17 ft lbs maximum or .375” or 3/8” 1350 and 1410 u-bolts = 20 to 24 ft lbs maximum  


UPGRADING U-JOINTS:  
When ordering a new driveshaft don’t forget that a driveshaft is only as strong as it’s weakest part.  Since you are getting a new drive shaft with a new slip yoke and new front and rear u-joints consider beefing up the u-joints to a stronger size and ordering a new pinion yoke for that same size u-joints to make your new driveshaft is as strong as possible.
