This weekend I think I noticed something I've never noticed before: the front d/s u-joints actually have different size caps. The ones that press into the shaft are a bit smaller and have a groove for a "backside c-clip" (not used) and the ones that go in the yokes are a bit larger.

The I.D. of the caps is the same, but the O.D.'s are different

Can anyone confirm? This appears to be the case on my '90 and my buddy's '87

Keith, are you running the stock 87 60 front yoke? What about the rear and then what about the joints. I had to go with a new rear yoke for the sterling, so I went 1350 and will use a xover joint, but havent looked at the front yet.

what about you zach?

on the rear i run a straight 1350 yoke.
my sterling has an aftermarket yoke though, as it had a 1330, but my driveshaft is a 1350(1 ton shaft)

Yes, that's the Ford 1330 joint, not the standard 1330 joint.

Really????? I thought the fronts were some weird Ford 1310. The stock rear joints are 1330ish.

Damon, a 10.25 can come with just about any yoke under the sun from Ford. Mine happened to come with a 1350 yoke on it. I'm running the same rear shaft as Zach, a High Angle 1350 shaft, so I now run a straight 1350 joint at the rear pinion.



On the front 60, my stock shaft slipped right in place. IOW, the yoke on my 60 was the same as on my D44 TTB. Same story for my buddy Nathan.

EDIT: before my new rear shaft I ran a 1330 to 1350 xover. Spicer part #5-648X but this not actually a Spicer joint, it's some Chinese knock-off or something in a Spicer box. Neapco is allegedly the way to go for a quality 1330 to 1350 xover. Call Denny's driveshaft in New York.
