Default 1 tons into 1/2 ton

I am swapping a 1 ton GM 14 Bolt axle into my 1/2 ton Chevy and was wondering what kind of u joint I will need to go from a 1/2 ton driveshaft to the 1 ton rear end, or will I need a 1 ton driveshaft? The 1/2 ton axle was a 12 Bolt.

They make a special u-joint for just that conversion. Go to the automotive store and tell them what you're doing and they should be able to help you out. Killer"b" should have a line on the part number, PM him and ask.

What year Chevy do you have? You could have a 1350 (manual trans), 1330 (70s 1/2 ton), 1310 (70s Blazer), or S44/3R (80s 1/2 ton).

1310 to 1350 is Spicer 5-460X or Neapco 3-3140
1330 to 1350 is Spicer 5-134x or Neapco 1-0134
1310 to S44/3R is Spicer 5-3022x or Neapco 3-3130

I think the Neapco joint for S44(3R) to 1330 is 2-1569. I don't remember if Spicer makes one. I don't know if anyone makes S44 to 1350 joints anymore either. I know they used to cost like $60.

they are not going to be 60 bucks. more in the 20 bones range.... that is such a normal conversion that there wont be any problems finding the joint

good luck
