ok reason im asking is i recently sold a 78 bronco to a friend. well he popped his cherry saturday so to speak. he grenaded the u joints in the cv and i noticed the spring cannot be reused(or can it? its jsut bent like a L) yet noone around here sells a rebuild kit. only a$$emblies that start at 160 bucks. i would normally just have him go to a salvage yard for a driveshaft but this is a new shaft so id like to see him keep it.
i dont have any doubt i can rebuild it for him but anyone have any ideas how we may get the parts for this cheaper than 160 smackaroos?
im ALMOST certain its a spicer with 1310 joints(i think it was 79 when the broncos got the 1330 joints). but i have yet to actually look the joint over real close.ill probably be able to figure something out on my own once i have the shaft out of the vehicle. i was just trying to come up with a guestimate of what its gonna cost him in parts before we start messing with it.
on the bright side this is a fairly cheap way to find out that a 460 has a bit more torque than the small blocks hes used to :rotfl:
