Help, rear driveline CV joint

My rear drive line has too much angle. It's working ok now but I know it's just a matter of time before it breaks.
What to do? Install CV joint? Is this what most of you are doing? I have a Scout Dana 300, rear SOA with a 2 inch block installed now. Rear drive line is 36 1/2 inch long with 12 1/2 inches of drop.
Where are you getting the CV joint? Part number? or just going to the drive line shop and have it made to spec?

Your better off having one built by a reputable driveline shop like Tom Woods, Jesse at Hi-angle driveline, etc.
Look in your local phone book, any decent local shop should be able to help you.

Re: Help, rear driveline CV joint

I've found that if you can find a rear shaft out of a '78-'79 Bronco all you will need to do is get it shortened. You should be able to locate a decent one of these at the junk yard cheap and then only spend around $30-$40 to shorten it.

Ujoint size

Do the Broncos use a 1330 ujoint, while the Jeep uses a 1310?

EDIT - found my own answer [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] That would be a NO, that particular year of Bronce used a 1310. I'll add that to my list of swaps. Sweet! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
