    I finally got around to swapping my differential and rebuilding my rear end...installed only to find the yoke isn't the same. The old one has a smaller yoke than the new one....can I just swap them? Do I need to find another? I don't have a socket large enough to get the large one off yet so I don't know how many spines there are....basically...what now?

    hey boss you need a 60/90 u joint it has both sizes.

    or change everything to the same size. the 440 size is noticeably thicker than the 383 size.

    try not to die -

    60/90? I assume you mean it fits my smaller driveshaft and larger yoke?

    Where might I find this?
