Ford 8.8 Yoke

Everyone who has put the Ford 8.8 in the rear of their jeeps what yoke adapter are you using?

The MORE uses the stock 1310 u-joint... is that what you still use... or do you upgrade to a beefer u-joint?

Re: Ford 8.8 Yoke

I have the more addapter yoke on my 8.8 (you can get it cheeper form other places) to run a 1310 joint but i have a 1330 u-bolt style yoke sitting on my garage floor and i'll use that joint when i get a sye and i'll probably cut down a bronco drive shaft (1330 joint from the factory) and then either get get a 1330 yoke on my sye. I hoped that helped.

Re: Ford 8.8 Yoke

Thanks for that info...

Where can I get MORE stuff cheaper??

Also, I was looking at doing this..
http://www.iedls.com/yokes.html

They have a 1350 Steel Pinion Yokes, comes with the yoke, and the u-bolt straps.. for a Ford 8.8, also uses U-Joint 1350...

Is this overkill for an 8.8 ? ...

I then would get my SYE re-designed (or a new one) for all 1350 U-Joints..

Any thoughts on the procedure I`m thinking of?

Thanks

Re: Ford 8.8 Yoke

I'm guessing if you add 1350 joints you will be blowing up other things that are much more expensive than a u-joint. I believe that 1350's are 1 ton joints and i know the 8.8 isn't a 1 ton axle and you might be eating shafts, ring and pinion and t-cases instead of cheep joints. I'm not 100% sure about this but i'd say stay lighter duty.

Re: Ford 8.8 Yoke

Ok thanks.. I just thought it would be kind of weird to put the same size u-joint that the d35 used rigt back in front of the new stronger Ford 8.8..

But you are right, it's cheaper to replace a u-joint and a $40 adapter than new gears and tcaseparts..

Where can I get more stuff cheap?

Re: Ford 8.8 Yoke

a 1310 is the same size as a 297 which is also used in d44's. I know the 1330 is used in 1/2 ton and maybe 3/4 ton trucks. I would say use 1330's, get a full size bronco drive shaft cut down and you might even be able to use a yoke off a bronco t-case if your lucky.
