in the pic, you see the output flanges on the 8.8s. The top one is the Ujoint type flange, and the bottom one has a flat driveflange. Can they be swapped out? I will post pics tommorow of the 8.8 i just bought but the output looks like the one in the top pic and the bronce has the one in the bottom pic. I need to know if they will swap.

95% sure they can swap. just be remember there is a crush sleeve in there. too tight and you will burn up pinion bearings.

I think they're both a 1310 u-joint so why does it matter?

78's had 1310, 79-> newer are 1330
Alright well either way the joint is the same, so why bother changing yokes?

He won't be able to use his drive shaft if he doesn't swap the flange
Why not? The pinion length should be the same and the joint is the same.

What the hell I have never seen a mount like that bottom one. WTF does that plate bolt too?

That bottom one is what is on my bronco now. it is a flat plate flange mount. I just wanted to know if i could swap them out. saving me from using the straps. thanks

How hard is it to swap out. what do i need to do?

Check the torque on the pinion nut as you remove it and then retorque the nut to the same spec when you replace it. Otherwise replace the crush sleeve when you swap yokes and follow the installation procedure


I could be wrong but I think that's as accurate as you'll get
