I seem to remember reading somewhere that the rear driveshaft off of a Bronco II can be cut to fit a YJ with a SYE. Does anyone know if this will work or have you tried this? Thanks for your help.

I haven't tried it but anything can be made to fit. If you just need to shorten it a chop saw will work and then weld it up with a sleeve inside or outside the tube. The only problem area is balancing. If it's a trailer queen don't worry about it but if it's a daily driver you want to have it balanced by a driveline shop.

Many Grand Waggies have CV shafts on the front, but they are small diameter tubing. Still adding thicker tubing to the CV and such could be cheaper than having one custom built...add a waggie CV shaft to a tractor PTO driveshaft and what do you have? A long travel CV shaft.

Thanks,

I would think that it would work, I would have to have it balanced it is not a dailey driver but it does get driven to and from the trail, but that is cheap, I am working on a budget here, but do not want to compromise strength, I would think that Ford would use genuine spicer parts and it should be pretty strong. I will have to look into it farther, thanks for your help.

I would question wether or not they are spicer parts. My company makes 3 million flat flanges a year and every one of them has the ford oval cast into them. As far as I know most of fords driveline is machined at or thru Visteon wich is no longer ford.

It might not be a spicer part, but it is an interchangable part. My explorer uses a spicer yoke on the rear and the one on the TC is stamped ford but the front and rear joints of the driveshaft are the same size. basicly any u-joint in a rear wheel drive aplication can be cross-referenced to a spicer#. When I had the rear shaft of my wrangler rebuilt and balanced they used spicer joints, but when the joint blew from driver error(too much right foot) I replaced it with a napa joint that I had as a spare for my explorer. Same joint only the napa one wasn't made by spicer.

You're right. If anybody ever needs any pinion flanges, flat flanges,or slip yokes for fords, drop me an e-mail. Odds are we probably make it or have one laying around.

I have the SYE from RE(flange style), and the bronco style will fit, just take it to your local machine shop, and they can cut it to length,and true it up... if you have a yoke SYE you can get a cv from the front of a waggy, or a 79~f150(dad has one stock)front... also the front tjs will fit too..

There are only two styles of cv used on domestic products: saginaw and spicer. The saginaw uses a large round flange on the driveshaft that bolts to the transfer case output yoke. The spicer uses the little half cap that bolts to a yoke very similar to a standard output yoke that supports half the u-joint.
