1350 to 7290 U Joint

Postby brandon_n » Thu Jul 28, 2016 10:54 am

Just came across this and thought I would share it. From my understanding the '94 - '98 2500/3500's use a detroit 7290 u joint on the axle side of the drive shaft, at least that's what my truck has. This u joint allows you to use your stock drive shaft with a 1350 u bolt style yoke. I've had a hell of a time with the u joint straps, I always end up snapping one of the strap bolt heads off. Happened for the 3rd time earlier this year leaving me in a fairly precarious situation. Drive shaft bounced off my oil pan nice and hard, luckily didn't put a hole in it, and I had to get pretty western in 2wd to get out of the canyon I was in. I was planning on getting a drive shaft from tom woods with 1350 joints, but I was looking at about 300 for the drive shaft and another 140ish for the yoke. I don't really need a drive shaft from them, my stock one isn't binding or anything, so when I came across this 1350 to 7290 u joint I was pretty stoked. Here's a link to the site.

I switched my Ramcharger over to 7290's... but I had a custom driveshaft built. :wink:
